Making lemonade is not hard, and it’s not only better tasting, but better for you to make it from scratch. There’s a simple and easy way to make fantastic lemonade each and every time. Nor do you have to make a simple syrup. Sugar dissolves easily if stirred in. Serves 6 or more.
- For every 1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice, you add 3/4 cup of sugar, and 5 cups of water. The same applies to lime juice for limeade. If you are using Meyer lemons, which are a hybrid of lemons and tangerines (thereby sweeter), you simply reduce the amount of sugar to 1/2 a cup for each cup of Meyer lemon juice. Stir well. Add ice, maybe some fresh mint, and youâre done.
