Classic Lemonade

Just in time for the 4th of July and all other summer celebrations for that matter. Nothing is better than homemade!



  • 6 large lemons
  • 6 cups cold water
  • 1 cup sugar, or less to taste (you can use honey instead of sugar)


Squeeze the lemons and remove any seeds from the juice. If you don't care for the pulp then strain the juice through cheesecloth. To get more juice from the lemons when squeezing be sure to squeeze them when they are at room temperature.

Combine lemon juice, sugar and water. Stir well until all of the sugar dissolves, chill and serve over ice. This recipe will render about eight or more 8 ounce glasses of lemonade depending on how much ice you choose to use
