Would you believe me if I told you how simple this recipe is? This sweet and tart recipe only requires 3 ingredients that are cheap and most likely you have already.


  • 6 lemons
  • 8 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • Pitcher
  • saucepan
  • juicer
  1. First, bring one cup of water to a boil in a saucepan. Once its boiling, add 2 cups of sugar to it and keep a constant stir until fully dissolved. Remove saucepan from the heat to cool. This will make a simple syrup. Tip: If you like your lemonade to be sweeter than make more simple syrup with 2:1 parts.

  1. Next, cut 6 lemons in half and juice them on the hand juicer. Or if you have an electric juicer, then you would need to cut the peels off the whole lemon before juicing.
  2. Third, get a pitcher and add the remaining cups of water to the pitcher. Then add the simple syrup and lemon juice to the pitcher and stir.
  3. Lastly, refrigerate the pitcher until cool. Serve cold over a cup of ice with a straw and a slice of lemon as garnish.
