The Only Lemonade Recipe You’ll Ever Need

On Monday we stretched our skill set a little bit and learned how to make the most gourmet cookies ever thanks to the addition of fancy brown butter. Today, we’re taking things a few steps backwards to something much more basics with a simple (so, so simple) recipe for lemonade.

I know, I know, there are plenty of you out there who don’t “need” a lemonade recipe. Just like not everyone needs a recipe for French Toast or Macaroni & Cheese and some people are perfectly fine just winging it. I totally respect that, but for the rest of us (particularly those of you like me, who like neatly spelled out instructions), we have a recipe.

Lemonade is easy to make, but I’ve found that getting the ratios right is critical. Too much lemon and your lemonade is too tart and undrinkable, too much water and it’s, well, watered down. What we have today is a perfectly balanced recipe that everyone is going to love.

How to make lemonade: squeezing lemons for homemade lemonade

I actually got this lemonade recipe from my brother, Josh. He is always being asked to make lemonade (and tea) for my family. He makes the best lemonade and so I asked him to share his secret recipe with me. Turns out, it came from the back of a lemon juice bottle 🤷🏼‍♀️. This recipe is similar to that one, but of course I had to make a few small tweaks, including using real, fresh lemons and simple syrup.

Simple Syrup in Lemonade

When Josh makes lemonade, he simply combines everything and stirs it together. Lemon juice, water, and sugar all go into the pitcher and get a good mixing and that’s that. However, the lemonade always needs to be stirred before serving, to make sure the sugar isn’t settled onto the bottom of the pitcher.

To prevent this, I recommend making a simple simple syrup. All this involves is combining one cup of granulated sugar and one cup of water in a saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.

And that’s it. The sugar will be completely dissolved into the water, so when you combine this with your lemon juice (and the rest of the water) the sweetness will be evenly distributed without any evident sugar granules remaining.

Yes, you can make this lemonade recipe using bottled lemon juice. My brother does this all the time. And the lemonade is always excellent.

However, it probably won’t come as a surprise to you that I recommend using freshly squeezed lemons whenever you have the chance! You’ll only need 3-4 nice sized lemons to get the cup of juice you need for this lemonade recipe.
