But I don't want to buy it from the store. Those versions are usually terribly sweet or have food coloring in them. They can also be pricey.
Somewhere along the line, I found a recipe for homemade lemonade that is really really easy (my favorite!).
|So refreshing on a summer. day.|
|You will find this jug perpetually in our frig. I rarely let it run out.|
Super simple homemade lemonade
It all depends on the size of your container, but I use a 1 gallon jug.
2 cups lemon juice (I just get the 4-cup Great Value brand for under $2)
1.5 cups granulated sugar
Water enough to fill the 1-gallon jug
Just stir it all up and pop it in the frig. I like it because it is very light, more lemon-y than sweet and is only juice, sugar and water. I also love to mix some of this with grape or cranberry juice and stick it in the freezer for awhile until it turns into a slushie. YUMMY!
