Old Fashioned Lemonade

Whether you are having a nice barbecue, or simply want to have a cool glass of something sweet and tart, you really can't go wrong with lemonade. While you could always go out and purchase some of the prepackaged lemonade, you simply can't beat the old fashioned lemonade that is made by hand. Making old fashioned lemonade isn't all that difficult or even time consuming. It does require that you use a few different ingredients, and a willingness to experiment.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large fresh lemons
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 6 cups cold water (more or less to taste)

Recipe:

  1. Juice the lemons. The first step in making some old fashioned lemonade is to actually juice the lemons. This is done by first firmly rolling the lemons along on your table or counter top. This makes the membranes in the lemon a little looser and will allow you an easier time of getting all the juice out of the citrus fruits that you can. Slice the lemons in half. Use either a hand juicer or an electric version and squeeze all the juice out that you can. You should get roughly one cup of lemon juice from this exercise. Set the juice aside and proceed to the next step.
  2. Combine ingredients. Pour the cup of lemon juice into a one gallon pitcher and then pour the water in as well. Once you have done that add the sugar as well, and stir thoroughly. Continue to stir the combination until the sugar has dissolved completely. Taste the resulting lemonade, and adjust to taste. You may want to add some water or sugar until you reach the exact taste that you want. If necessary, you can even squeeze another lemon to add a little extra bit of lemony goodness.
  3. Chill and serve. Place the completed lemonade into the refrigerator and allow it to chill for about one hour prior to serving. Pour the lemonade over some ice, and sit back and enjoy how good everything tastes.

The recipe as listed here will provide about one gallon of lemonade. If you would like to make more or less, depending on your needs, all you need to do is adjust the recipe accordingly. For example, if you are interested in only making half a gallon, then simply use half of the listed ingredients. Whereas, if you are interested in making more than what is listed here, then simply double the amount of ingredients. It really couldn't be easier to utilize this recipe for your specific needs.
