  • “This was so simple to make. A hint to get the most juice from your lemons, roll them on the counter top for a while and then squeeze. I also cut up two limes and added them to the pitcher of lemonade. Fantastic drink. Very refreshing.”

  • “Perfect! It took 4 regular size lemons to make about a cup and a half juice. Just the right amount of tart and sweet. Thank you!”

  • “Hit the spot!Very refreshing accompaniment to our Southern Buttermilk Bonanza meal.Thanks for posting this recipe.”

  • “We use less water (5 ½ cups) and less sugar (3/4 cup) for a tarter lemonade.Delicious!:)”

  • “Very nice and refreshing .”

  • “This is a good basic recipe for one of my favorite drinks! I served it over ice and delicious! Good recipe.”

  • “Delicious. My 4 lemons only netted me 1/2 cup lemon juice, so I adjusted the water & sugar accordingly. (The lemons were organic & tend to be on the smaller side.) Also, I made a simple syrup by boiling the sugar with a couple of cups of filtered water and letting it cool on the stove – that stops the sugar from separating. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Love this lemonade! I also slice open a lemon and hand pick the juicy pulp and add it to the pitcher. It adds a little “texture” and random “sour bites” that are oh so yummy!”

  • “Very Good! I just tried this recipe with Lemon Juice (bottled) since I didn’t have any lemons and was craving lemonade 🙂 Tasted as is great. I also added around 1/4 Cup extra of Sugar and I also Steeped Raspberry Tea in an 8oz Glass of boiling water and added to the mix (used 8 reg sized Tea Bags), Both taste wonderful thank you for the recipe and the inspiration to work with what I had on hand.Update:Made the recipe as is and tastes so fresh and wonderful.The children love it.”

  • “This really hit the spot when I got a late night craving for lemonade (and no, I’m not expecting!)It was quick, easy, & very tasty.took about 4 large lemons to get the 1 1/2 cups of juice required.Thanks, DiB!”

  • “The perfect drink for a hot summer’s day.I had just zested a bunch of lemons and wanted to use the juice, this recipe really came in handy.We like our lemonade sweet so I added another 1/4 cup of sugar.To help it dissolve easier I used room temperature water and then stored the lemonade in the fridge for a few hours before we drank it.I also added a few sprigs of mint to the second batch, very refreshing!”

  • “This was excellent.So refreshing, wonderful flavor. Perfect for summer. Felt like I should be sitting on a front porch in a rocking chair, with a fan, sipping away!”

  • “Better than Chick-fila’s!!!”

  • “So refreshing.I made this for my family the other night for supper and they all loved it.Its the fresh squeezed juice, they were used to the powdered lemonade.So easy to do too, I plan on making this more often in the summer months.Thank you for sharing with us.So good.”

  • “This is so delicious! It is perfect for a hot summer day.”

  • “very good!”

  • “We don’t have lemonade often in our house, so I squeezed only 1 cup of lemon juice instead of 1 1/2. I think it turned out great, but I may try 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice next time to see which we like best. Thank you for such an easy and delicious recipe :]”
