Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

How about a glass of refreshing fresh squeezed lemonade? It’s delicious and a great thirst quencher on warm days. Next to iced tea it’s one of my favorite beverages. Making fresh squeezed lemonade is easy and takes only minutes. I always love seeing child entrepreneurs with their pop up stands selling lemonade in summer. Life’s lessons can come from something so simple as selling a glass of cold lemonade to thirsty patrons.


  • 8-10 Lemons, 🍋 juiced (2 cups)
  • 2 Lemons, sliced for garnish
  • 1 c Hot Water
  • 1 1/4 c Sugar
  • 12-15 c Cold Water
  • Ice, for serving 


Add hot water to a pitcher. I use the hottest tap water.
Add sugar to hot water and stir until dissolved.
Juice lemon into a large measuring cup. Each lemon should yield about 1/4 c of juice. I don’t worry about seeds getting into the measuring cup. You can just pour through a strainer into the pitcher to remove the seeds.
Add fresh lemon juice and cold water to the pitcher, stir to combine.
Add fresh lemon slices to lemonade if desired.
Serve with ice and a slice of lemon.
