How To Make It
Classic Lemonade Recipe…..from scratch….lemonade is a must have during the summer months whether you’re at the beach or in the city. It’s tart, sweet and refreshing. It’s sunshine in a glass and it’s so incredibly simple to make.
Fresh squeezed lemon juice is blended with water and stirred with simple syrup, then poured over ice and sipped through a straw while listening to the crickets chirp in the distance.
It’s something I always have in the fridge and it’s even more delish mixed with a little libation like vodka or gin.
How Long Will It Last
This easy Lemonade recipe will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks but I promise you, it’s going to vanish way before that. It’s sweet, tart flavor keeps you coming back for more!
How To Serve It
This Classic Lemonade Recipe is the perfect party staple, too! Sip it on it’s own in a glass filled with ice or add it as a mixer for a DIY bar to round out your cocktail selection (I always serve these Strawberry Mojitos and Blueberry Juleps, too!)
