Awesome Summer – Single Serving Lemonade Recipe

My son loves lemonade, and I don’t care for all the added junk in the powdered mixes. Don’t get me wrong – we use them every once in a awhile, but I would rather just mix up a glass with fresh ingredients when he wants one.

Our recipe is super tart and super sweet – adjust your ingredients according to your personal tastes.


Serves 1

  • 1/4 cup sugar (we like to use turbinado sugar – it gives it a molasses kind of taste)
  •  1/4 lemon juice
  • ice
  • water
  1. Mix the sugar and the lemon juice together in a 16 oz glass. If your sugar doesn’t want to dissolve, you can heat the mixture up in the microwave for 10 – 20 seconds (do this before you add the ice and water)
  2. Fill the glass up with ice, and then fill the rest of the way up with water.
  3. Give it a good stir, and enjoy!
