Mama’s Kitchen: Fresh Lemonade

fresh lemonade
Nothing says summer like a glass of fresh lemonade. Maybe it’s because as a kid every summer I would set up a lemonade stand in my front yard.  Making lemonade and setting up a lemonade stand is a good old fashioned fun summertime activity that is fun and keeps the kids busy.  Here’s a lemonade recipe that both kids and adults will enjoy.

Actually, I love lemonade all year long but it tastes more delicious in the summer for some reason. I’m very particular about my lemonade – I only drink the freshly made variety. (Except when I was a kid I drank the powder variety until my sister made me a glass that was literally neon yellow). Like everything, I like my lemonade sweet. Not like candy, but close to candy. I have a quick recipe for fresh lemonade, the most time consuming part of this is squeezing the lemons. Whether or not life gives you lemons, make lemonade ;)

Fresh Lemonade Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice (depending on the size and juiciness of the lemons between 3 and 7 lemons)
  • 1 Cup of Ice
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 4 Cups of Water

1.  Put sugar, lemon juice, ice and 1 cup of water in a blender and blend.

2. Pour the mixture in a pitcher, add the remaining 3 cups of water and stir.

That’s it! Enjoy!
