We had some lemons left over from making lemon cookies, and Mike and Johnny used them to make some delicious lemonade! We have tried making lemonade a few times, and this was our favorite version! Here’s what they did:
How to Make Lemonade

I love homemade lemonade but I never get the proportions right. I’m going to pin this and try it out!
There is something special about homemade lemonade!?
I love the picture!
Jotting down these ratios. I only know the trial and error method.
My kids love to make lemonade. I’m sure they will be requesting it soon.
It’s such a wonderful summer treat!
I think a lemonade stand is next (when the weather warms up)!
I remember making lemonade from my husband’s grandmothers lemon tree. We picked the lemons and made some awesome lemonade.
Man, I haven’t thought about that in a a while.
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
Let’s see, my favorite summer recipe? Anything that someone else cooks.
We had fresh lemonade a lot in Egypt – kept the bad tummy bugs at bay! :)
My favourite summer recipe is probably pasta salad: shell pasta cooked al dente and cooled under running water, add chopped carrot, green onion, sliced black olives, green bell pepper, and a drained can of tomato pieces. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over one cup of your favourite Italian dressing and let sit an hour or overnight. Add parmesan cheese and serve.
Your summer salad sounds delicious – we will definitely try it this year! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Love Johnny’s face! Winter is coming to SA which means citrus season! We make homemade lemonade and orange juice lots because there’s so much cheap citrus around!
Fresh local citrus is the best!
I’ve discovered with the pitcher I have (that has a built in mixer thing, it’s a Pampered Chef one), you can add in 2 lemons worth of slices, a cup of water, fill it to the top, and you get htis nice lemon drink.
I bought a bag of lemons to make it again, and haven’t done so yet. I need to do that.
That sounds lovely – and much healthier than our sugary version!
After making the lemonade, you should try this frozen lemonade ice cream pie. It is delicious and easy to make. http://www.brennaphillips.com/frozen-lemonade-ice-cream-pie
