Home Made Lemonade

I am not sure it happened, but it is officially April!  There is such promise of green grass, blooming trees, and colorful flowers in my future… I can almost smell the vibrant scents of summer.  I am geared up and ready to start my vegetable garden, spend my days after work outside, and start making all of our dinners on the grill.  Ooh, how I yearn for summer. 

While I may not be ready to put on shorts and flip flops just yet, I can still indulge in tiny fragments of summer in my own little ways.  This weekend, I decided to make lemons into lemonade, quite literally, and enlisted the help of Elle to create the best home made lemonade. 

Elle is a huge fan of lemonade, or “lemon juice”, as she calls it.  She isn’t too far off base, since a great home made lemonade only contains fresh lemon juice, sugar and water.  Such simple ingredients come together to create a bright, refreshing beverage that embodies the spirit of summer. 

Whatever you want to call it, this lemonade is one worthy of making again, and again. 

Home Made Lemonade 

  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons worth) 
  • 1 cup organic sugar cane (or sugar) 
  • Water

Juice 6-8 lemons, to make about 1 cup worth of lemon juice.  

In a small sauce pan, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water, and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and allow to cool. 

Combine lemon juice with cooled sugar water.  Add around 2 quarts of water (8 cups), and stir.  Serve over ice cubes with a lemon slice.
