Best Homemade Lemonade Recipe

Enjoy a Delicious Glass on Your Porch!

Looking for a fantastic lemonade recipe? A few summers ago, Dave and I were treated to the best homemade lemonade we've ever had.




Pink Lemonade or Traditional - Which Do You Prefer?

Which do you enjoy most, traditional lemonade or the pink variety? I've always liked the pink variety myself, but either is the best. What makes it pink? We have read it could be pink from the addition of cranberry juice, strawberries or even red food dye.

Seems like a bit of cranberry juice would be the easiest way to go.



Best Homemade Lemonade We've Ever Tasted!

Our friends, Donna and Danny, sure do know how to make lemonade. And not only that, I spied the pitcher of lemonade when Danny opened the refrigerator door. Lo and behold, it was chock full of freshly sliced lemons. What a beautiful sight.

So, thanks to the two of them, here is their wonderful recipe.

Ingredients

6 fresh lemons
2 qts. water
2/3 to 1 cup sugar (to your taste)
Ice
2-quart glass pitcher

Directions

Set the lemons in the sun for about two hours to get them nice and warm (perhaps on your porch or patio).

Then roll the lemons to loosen them up inside. Slice the lemons and discard the ends.

In the 2 quart glass pitcher, add the sliced lemons, 2/3 cup sugar and fill with water.

Let it set in the refrigerator overnight and do a taste test in the morning. You may want to add a little extra sugar. Serve over ice and enjoy!

We found a really neat site about helpful kitchen tips. They offer useful tips for the kitchen, the special room in our home where we spend so much time. You can find guides on decor, small appliances, cutlery, plumbing and backsplashes. It's a fun site to browse.
