The most refreshing drink of all times – Fresh Squeezed Lemonade. Made with just freshly squeezed lemons, sugar and water.
Fresh squeezed lemonade is the only way to go. For me nothing, but fresh squeezed will do. I don’t like powdered mixes. They don’t even taste like lemonade. Frozen concentrate lemonades are a bit too sweet. But homemade – it’s the only way to go!
What do you need to make lemonade?
Three ingredients are all you need: lemons, sugar and water. That’s it! I like my lemonade a bit on the tart side. If you like yours a bit sweeter, you can add a touch more sugar.
Do I need to use fresh lemon juice?
Yes! Bottled lemon juice just isn’t the same as fresh squeezed lemon juice. You want the very best when making this lemonade. My mom will often squeeze lemons and freeze them in one cup containers. Pure frozen lemon juice can be used in this recipe.
For me fresh squeezed lemonade is so perfectly refreshing. Nothing quenches my thirst quite like a glass of ice-cold lemonade. Lemons are loaded with vitamins and drinking lemonade is supposed to help keep you calm and cool! I always feel like it hydrates me and gives me a little pick-me-up. Another lemonade recipe I make is Raspberry Lemonade. You might also want to try this refreshing sparkling limeade.

Whip up a batch of this refreshing beverage and then sit back, sip and relax!
