Best lemonade ever

    4 hours 35 min

    Lemonade is a very refreshing drink when it's so hot outside - this is the best one ever! Add less sugar if you prefer a more tart taste. You will need to squeeze about 6 large lemons to get 350ml of juice.

    So easy to make but I added a twist of adding Lemon zest to the sugar syrup when it's cooking, more flavour and more zing.  -  20 May 2017


    My daughters and I made this and it was awesome. Instead of boiling the water and sugar mixture on the stove I put it in the microwave for 1min. when done I added some ice to cool it down so it did not take long to make at all. Very refreshing.  -  10 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This one's a keeper. Yes, it is labor intensive. Hey, you might even build up your triceps with all that lemon twisting action - but, if you have the time, the effort is well worth it. This recipe IS quite sweet, so if your tastes preference runs closer to tart, go easy on the sugar. I needed six or seven lemons to make 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.  -  08 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
