Summertime Staple: Fresh-squeezed Lemonade

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. It's quick, easy and refreshing. Forget about those "lemonade" mixes with all the unnecessary extra ingredients!

What you need:
  • 2-qt pitcher
  • 2 lemons
  • Filtered water
What you do:
  • Cut both lemons in half and use a hand juicer to juice all 4 lemon halves.
  • Pour the juice into your pitcher, and fill with filtered water.
  • No sugar necessary, but maybe I should warn you that I love tart and sour flavors. If you do use sugar, try Florida Crystals Natural Cane Sugar for a healthier option.

I'll never forget the first time I made real lemonade from scratch in Australia for my husband and his family. They looked at me like I was from another planet and then gulped it down so fast I went through about 10 lemons and a bag of sugar that day!

So glad to have found your blog.
