There's something about our Fresh Lemonade that is just so refreshing, you'll want to have a pitcher of it on hand at all times!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • Grated peel of 1 lemon
  • 5 cups cold water
  • 2 cups ice
What To Do:
  1. In a large pitcher, dissolve the sugar in the boiling water, stirring until dissolved. Add the lemon juice and lemon peel; mix well.
  2. Add the cold water and ice, stirring until well blended.

Flavor Options:

  • Pineapple-Mint Lemonade: Stir 3 cups pineapple juice and 1/4 cup mint leaves into the lemonade before adding the ice cubes, and serve.
  • Watermelon Lemonade: Puree 2 cups seedless watermelon chunks; stir into the lemonade before adding the ice cubes, and serve.
  • Berry Berry Lemonade: Thaw and puree a 10-ounce package of frozen mixed berries with 1/4 cup honey; stir into the lemonade before adding the ice cubes, and serve.


  • Serve in tall glasses garnished with lemon slices. If making this in advance, don't add the ice until ready to serve.
  • Wanna put out a plate of cookies? We'd like to suggest our delicious oatmeal cookies!
