homemade lemonade

lemonade | marlee and you

Even if life isn't giving you lemons, making lemonade is always a great idea on those hot summer days! As part of my summer bucket list, I wanted to try making lemonade from scratch. The recipe itself is quite simple, but I've never had to hand juice fruit before, so it was quite the experience (and workout for my wrist)!

lemonade | marlee and you


1 3/4 c. Sugar
1 1/2 c. Lemon Juice
8 c. Water

Dissolve sugar in 1 cup of hot or boiling water (I microwaved my water). Stir. Add lemon juice and remaining water into a large pitcher. Stir. Serve over ice and enjoy! 

I don't mean to brag, but this was the best lemonade I've ever had! Maybe it's because it was more satisfying having made it myself, but it could also just be the fact that homemade, fresh things are always the best! Let me know if you give this recipe a try!

What's your favourite summer drink to sip on?

  3. Well, believe me or not, I've never drank lemonade before! Probably because of the taste of lemons or the fact that I've never given it a try... anyways, it's winter here (sadly) but I'm going to make this homemade lemonade for myself because I want to taste it!! I'm going to send you a photo via twitter then! ;)
