Homemade Lemonade

I grew up with lemon trees growing in our So Cal backyard and sadly, I didn’t realize how lucky we were until I started cooking in adulthood. Of course there are lemons available at the grocery store in Kansas, but to have an infinite supply of fresh lemons is something I wish I had now. 🍋

Have you ever made your own lemonade? I’m not talking about the powdered stuff you drink at parties. This recipe is super easy and starts with making a simple syrup… then combining lemon juice with the simple syrup, then diluting with water. Fool proof every time!


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

Blessings, Jolie

  1. We left lemon trees behind at two places now, and may miss them more than any other parts of those places. We may get reckless and try one here in zone 8/9…
