Lemons, sugar and water are all you need to make old-fashioned lemonade.
This is wonderful, especially with Meyer lemons. Be careful with the sugar though. I started with less sugar and didn't need to add the rest. A tip to those who think this is bitter- the peel is not bitter, the white membrane inside it is. Use a sharp knife to peel the lemons and take only the colored part, not the white, and no bitterness. - 03 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The best lemonade I've ever tasted- you can make this recipe simpler by juicing the lemons first, then adding sugar to the rinds. - 21 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Nice taste, but one tip... resist the urge to press the peel or stir it around in the sugar. Just put it in, mix it lightly and let it alone! Otherwise the end result will be bitter. Trust me. - 16 May 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
