Homemade Lemonade

Summer just isn’t summer without a cold glass of lemonade and this homemade lemonade is just what you’ll remember from your childhood. Made with freshly squeezed lemons, water and sugar, it’s the best way to beat the sweaty, humid, hot days that still linger ahead of us.

This recipe is the perfect blend of sweet and tart but can be easily adjusted to your personal taste. And you can easily amp up the flavor profile by adding some blended fruit like strawberries or blueberries.

Long lazy days were made for a tall glass of this easy Lemonade.

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 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!)

Served with some fun summer dishes like my favorite Classic Lobster Rolls or a big bowl of Banana Pudding, your guests will never want to leave.
