Summer Fresh Lemonade Recipes

***found in Country Living August 2005

Fresh Lemonade:

To prepare a 2-quart pitcher, mix 2 cups of lemon juice with 6 cups of water and 1 cup of superfine sugar.  Fill with ice.  For best results, use fresh-squeezed lemons.  Tip: About 6 medium lemons produce about 1 cup of juice.

P.S. Lemonade served in a full-bottomed pitcher easily accommodates a pretty garnish.  Make the garnish tasty, too, using fruit flavored ice cubes.  Cut up the fruit of a honeydew melon into 1-inch pieces, puree in a food processor, strain, and freeze in ice cube trays overnight.  Try pureed watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi and mango also!

Pink Lemonade:

Stir 2 tbsp. of grape juice into 2 quarts of fresh lemonade (recipe above), for just the right shade of pale pink.  Chill and serve.


Combine 1 1/2 cups of fresh lime juice and 1/2 cup of lemon juice with 6 cups of water and 1 cup superfine sugar.  Serve over ice in a glass with a sugared rim and garnish with a lime wedge.

xoxo Enjoy! Julie
