Perfect Lemonade

I have two bushes of ripe lemons outside, so I have begun making things with the juice. Of course, lemonade is a natural choice.

In my opinion, perfect lemonade is sweet, but not so sweet that it overpowers the lemon juice. Here’s my recipe. It makes one gallon:

Perfect Lemonade:


  • 1 c lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 c water + remaining water to fill the pitcher


Put sugar and 1 cup of water in a sauce pan and heat, stirring constantly until all the sugar is dissolved.

Add the sugar/water mixture and lemon juice to a one-gallon pitcher. Fill the rest of the pitcher with water.

Pour yourself a glass of lemonade and relax.
