Super easy homemade lemonade.

My husband and I are huge fans of lemonade, so when my mom found this recipe, we were thrilled!! There’s something special about not buying the unnaturally yellow stuff in bottles – and actually, we think this is the best lemonade we’ve ever had! I’m not sure we’ll ever go back. :) When I tested the recipe a couple weeks ago, and then made it again here in Virginia and we still loved it, I knew I wanted to share it!

SUPER Easy Homemade Lemonade

Smash together with a masher or wooden spoon until sugar is more or less dissolved, and lemons are broken.

Transfer this mixture into the pitcher you’ll serve it in.

Add 2 trays of ice and 3 1/2 or 4 cups cold water.

Stir. Serve at once.

** If you made this a day early, pull out the lemons so that it doesn’t get bitter.

As you can see, this doesn’t make a TON of lemonade…but it sure is the perfect amount for the two of us for a day. If you want to make more, just buy one of those bags of lemons and adjust the recipe accordingly! :)
