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.
- 1/4 cup sugar (we like to use turbinado sugar – it gives it a molasses kind of taste)
- 1/4 lemon juice
- 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)
- Fill the glass up with ice, and then fill the rest of the way up with water.
- Give it a good stir, and enjoy!
