Description

The best summertime treat ever!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Sugar
  • 6 cups Water
  • 24 whole Lemons, Juiced
  • 8 cups Water (additional)
  • Lots Of Ice!

Preparation

Heat 4 cups sugar with 6 cups of water in a medium saucepan until it’s dissolved. Set this in the fridge to cool.

Chill the lemon juice if you have the time.

Pour the lemon juice into a large vat. Pour in 3/4 of the syrup, then top off the vat with ice. Pour in 8 cups of water (give or take), stir it around, then give it a taste. Add more syrup if it needs sweetness, or more water if it needs dilution.

Serve immediately!

Add 2 cups raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, or sliced strawberries to the lemonade for different flavors.

Make hard lemonade by adding 2 cups light rum or tequila to the lemonade. (Naughty! Adults only!)

This is the PERFECT lemonade recipe! I have made this in the full quantity before, but when I had only 12 lemons on hand, I had to cut all the measurements in half….the delicious flavor was not compromised at all! Perfection.
