Homemade Lemonade

My stepmom taught me how to make lemonade from scratch and it is super easy!  Squeeze some lemons to get the juice, mix it with cold water, then add the sugar and serve!  Three ingredients and a delicious result.  I used a nifty citrus squeezer that made juicing the lemon easy and effortless.  Feel free to add more sugar or more lemon juice to taste, but this is a great place to start!


Homemade Lemonade

serves 3 people


  • 3 lemons
  • 3 cups of ice cold water
  • 1/4 cup of sugar


Squeeze the juice from the lemons and strain the juice into a pitcher to remove any seeds or pulp.  Mix with the ice water.  Then stir in the sugar until it is dissolved.  Taste it to see if you need to add more sugar or lemon juice to get the taste to your liking.  Serve with ice and a lemon wedge!
