Homemade Lemonade

There is nothing I love more than the taste of freshly homemade lemonade!  With so many brilliant recipes online I decided to give Simply Recipes easy recipe a go and the end result was just delicious!


  • 1 cup white, granulated sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 cups cold water (to dilute)

Place the sugar and 1 cup of water in a pan to dissolve on a low heat, once dissolved remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Juice 4 -6 lemons and add to the cooled syrup and stir.  Add the remaining 2-3 cups of water to suit your taste and enjoy!!!
