Ice Cold Lemonade


There is just nothing that says summer like a nice cold glass of fresh lemonade.

I am a lemonade lover.  There is just nothing better to cool you off and perk you up on a hot day.

And all the yummy things you can do with lemonade:  lemon-limeade, lemonade popsicles, raspberry lemonade, strawberry lemonade. . . .

I love homemade lemonade but I can’t stand the gritty texture of dissolved sugar in my glass.  I also hate it when there’s sludge at the bottom (ick).

You can only imagine how happy I was to find this great recipe for lemonade syrup.  My preference is definitely for fresh-squeezed lemons, but you could use commercial lemon juice in a pinch.

Since I am a fan of “pulpy” lemonade, I have been known to scoop out some of the lemon pulp and stir it into my glass.  That’s your call, though.

I love this so much that one year I made it for our church’s camp fundraiser.  I think I ended up with 5 quarts of syrup–all from fresh-squeezed lemons.

Nope, I won’t be doing that again any time soon, but it sure was a hit!

So to celebrate the start of summer, here’s my recipe for lemonade syrup that’s sure to please.  To download a printable recipe card, just click on the little download icon below the recipe.

  2. I’m very partial to mint lemonade, a staple here in the middle east. It smells and tastes SO fresh and is a perfect way to cool down in the heat.

    1. I think mint would definitely be the perfect complement to a great lemonade. We have fresh mint growing here; I’ll have to try adding some to my next batch.
