Lemonade

  • 2 cups of lemon juice
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • Tap water to make 1 gallon (about 3-1/2 quarts)
  • Gallon sized pitcher

In a large gallon-sized pitcher combine the lemon juice and sugar. Stir and stir to dissolve the sugar. If necessary, add a little hot tap water to help the process along. A cup or two of hot tap water will be plenty. When the sugar is dissolved add cold tap water to fill the pitcher. Serve over tall glasses of ice. If you prefer a stronger flavor, you may slice a fresh lemon into the pitcher. I usually use bottled lemon juice because it is the cheapest and most available to me. Adding the fresh lemon slices makes the bottled lemon juice taste much fresher.

The recipe may be cut in half if desired. Use 1-cup each of lemon juice and sugar. Prepare in a 2-quart pitcher.

When it comes to cheap beverage recipes, it doesn’t get any better than this. But of course then there’s the delicious and nutritious orange jubilee. Give it a try.

  1. I’ve been using this recipe for the past month now and everyone loves it. It’s so simple to throw together at the last minute. My six year old asks for this all the time.

  2. Sure, I thought I’d made that one up on my own! Lol. I got tired of making the whole simple syrup/lemon mixture on the stove top and wondered what would happen if i used my cheap lemon juice and warm water. I use 1 cup each sugar and lemon juice combine and add h20 to fill up my pitcher. Can’t make this fast enough for my guys on hot days!

  3. I have family that are Amish/Menenites…who cant have the real sugar and they us this same recipe with brown sugar and its delicious!
