Old Fashioned Homemade Lemonade

There is nothing more refreshing than a glass of old fashioned homemade lemonade. This recipe is simple and easy to make on a hot day!

– White Sugar – Water – Lemon Juice – Water – Ice – Lemon Slices


In a small saucepan add the sugar and the first measure of water. Heat over medium low until the sugar has fully dissolved into the water.


Leave the simple syrup mixture to cool for 10-15 minutes while juicing the lemons. Use a lemon juicer to juice about 6 or 7 lemons until you have one cup of lemon juice.


Measure out 1 cup or 250ml of the simple syrup and mix with the cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. This makes the lemonade syrup.


To serve add the lemonade syrup to a pitcher. Top up the pitcher with 4 cups or 1L of water, a few handfuls of ice and some slices of lemon.
