Easy Lemonade

A community recipe by

The secret to this lemonade recipe is to use simple syrup, made by boiling together sugar and water, then cooling. The sugar is completely dissolved and blends beautifully with the tart lemon.


Serves: 6

  • 250 water
  • 250 sugar
  • 6 lemons (juiced)
  • 1000 cold water

  • Additional Information

    I like to make more lemonade and freeze it in ice cube trays, adding the cubes to the lemonade so it's never diluted as the 'ice' melts
