Old-Fashioned Lemonade


  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 5 cups water, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1 ¾ cups lemon juice (about 10 large lemons) (we bought more than 10 lemons since we didn’t know what counted as “large” for lemons)


  1. Take a large saucepan out and mix the sugar, 1 cup of water and the lemon peel together in it. Set the heat to medium and stir the mixture for 4 minutes or until the sugar’s dissolved. Take the saucepan off the heat, stirring in the lemon juice and remaining water afterwards. Place the lemonade in the fridge and leave it there until it’s cold. Serve the drink over ice and enjoy !

This is a delicious classic lemonade. It’s sweet but you can still taste the lemon in this without it being pucker-inducing. A great drink to enjoy on a hot day.

We got this recipe from Taste of Home.

We weren’t paid in any form to promote Taste of Home.

Take care everybody !
