If you've ever had freshly made lemonade at a fair, then you'll love the fresh taste of our Lip-Smackin' Lemon Shake-Up! All ya do is make our flavor-packed lemon syrup ahead of time and when you crave a glass, ya simply shake it with equal amounts of water and ice. Doesn't get easier or tastier!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (6 to 8 lemons)

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to a boil. Continue cooking 5 minutes, or until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Place in refrigerator to chill until ready to serve.

Notes

  • When ready to serve, place 1/2 cup lemon syrup in a plastic drink shaker or 1-quart jar. Add equal amounts of cold water and ice as well as a lemon wedge, cover tightly, and shake vigorously 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into tall glasses over additional ice, garnish with lemon slices, and enjoy!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

What a great idea this is...kinda like a flavored simple syrup right? After you make up your drink I bet some fresh strawberries or blueberries would really be a nice compliment to the lemon. Do you think this would work with a sugar substitute like stevia...and if so, do you know what the correct measurement would be for it?

Hi there! Stevia is measured the same as sugar, so cup for cup, and adding fruit would be so yummy!

Thank you!

Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lemon Shake-Up, lovely. Refreshing as iced tea-lemonade, and imagine in mixed drink. ThanxH-o-t in Bama.
