The Perfect Summer Time Lemonade

Is there anything better than an ice cold fresh squeezed lemonade in the summertime.

Here is a perfect recipe to make fresh squeezed lemonade. I look forward to hearing how you like it!

So gather your supplies and be sure to use a clear pitcher for lemonade,because it’s so pretty with lemons floating about.


  • 1½ cup Sugar

  • 7-8 lemons

  • lemon zest

  • water


Wash Lemons well

Zest two lemons and set aside

Place 2 cups of water, lemon zest and sugar in sauce pan

Heat until sugar is dissolved.  Do not boil

Strain sugar solution into pitcher

Squeeze juice from all lemons – should be approx. 1 cup of juice

Add juice to pitcher 

Fill with water until pitcher is full – 1 quart of Lemonade

Stir before serving – keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  


This is truly the secret to making the perfect fresh lemonade. It’s so simple, just zest two of the lemons and up the flavor! I do recommend a very fine grater to get a fine zest.

Next just add your zest to 2 cups of water and your sugar. Heat until the sugar dissolves.
