How to make it

  • To make the base, place sugar in a heatproof pitcher or bowl, and pour boiling water and lemon juice over it.
  • Stir vigorously until sugar dissolves.
  • Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • To serve, add the ice cold water and lemon and orange slices.
  • Pour lemonade over glasses filled with ice cubes.
  • Makes about 7 cups of lemonade, enough to serve 6 to 8 people, depending on glass size and how much ice is in the glass.
  • NOTE: for old-fashioned soda fountain-style lemonade, substitute well-chilled lemon-lime soda for the 4½ cups water when ready to serve (7-up, Sprite, etc – I’ve even used orange soda and that’s a good flavor, too...create your own flavor with fruit juices or other soda flavors in place of the ice cold water).

    This sounds so refreshing and brings back so many good memories of those long hot summer days and nights with a big tall glass of mama's lemonade or tea. Great post and a high 5.
