The Best Homemade Lemonade Recipe

It seems like we may just skip over Spring this May, so in honor of the impending summer, I decided to make homemade lemonade! I like to make my lemonade “fair style,” so it’s quick, sweet, clean and delicious. Here is my simple homemade lemonade recipe!

Ingredients for Homemade Lemonade

  • 5-6 lemons
  • Simple Syrup (1 C of sugar+ 1 C water)
  • 3-4 C Water

The great thing about homemade lemonade is that you can adjust the sugar and lemons to create your personal  perfect lemonade–whether that’s sweet or tart!

How to Make Homemade Lemonade

1. Make your simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a saucepan.

2. Juice 4-5 lemons while you wait for the sugar to dissolve.

3. Combine the simple syrup and lemon juice in a pitcher over ice.

4.  Add 3 to 4 cups of additional cold water and more sugar or lemon juice to taste (if desired).

5. Garnish with a lemon slice!
