Makin' freshly squeezed lemonade. For real.

I don't think I've ever done a post about making lemonade.
Which is actually really weird, considering that I'm the Lemonade Makin' Mama, and all....(Though I do have a recipe listed on my menu bar, beneath my header.)
Ordinarily, I rope my man into squeezing lemons for me.  In a tee shirt.  So I can drool over his muscles while he squeezes every last drop of juice out of lemons.
But he wasn't around the other day, when I was making lemonade.  So there was no drooling.  Sigh.
  Here's my recipe for freshly squeezed, homemade lemonade.  It's yummmmmy.  The sweet vs. "pucker," ratio is just right.  This recipe gets it right every time.  And it's super easy to make.  Perfect for those lazy days that are just around the corner....

Dissolve 1c. sugar with 1c. water in a saucepan. 
Dump into a pitcher with 1c. freshly squeezed lemon juice. 
And add 4c. cold water.  Chill and enjoy!

Now.... go forth, and make lemonade out of lemons. 


  1. I love your pictures! This really does make me want to make some fresh lemonade. I might just have to buy that juicer I've been eying.

  2. The pics are so refreshing!! I thought of you last week when I decorated a large vase with 15 lemons in it! Have a great Monday! ; )

  3. Lena Kate LOVES lemonade....or wemonade as she says. It is her special treat if we eat out. Have a nice week!!!

  4. Can't wait to make!!!!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe! If spring ever gets here, I'll be making this! :-)

  5. I've made your recipe tons of times since you first put it on the sidebar, it makes the best margarita mix .
