This recipe was perfect! My 7 and 5 year old girls and I made it for their "lemonade stand." I cheated and bought frozen lemonjuice since I didn't have a juicer. Everyone was surprised when it was REAL lemonade and not Koolade! They did great on sales!

I have to agree with another reviewer, this lemonade is pretty tart. The flavor didn't really meld together well, so one sip was too sour and the next too sweet. It was okay for a quick recipe, but I think next time I will make a syrup with the water and sugar like you are supposed to. This one had weird results.

I chose this recipe bacause it was quick and I was looking for an afternoon activity to do with the kids. The kids loved it; I would reduce the sugar by at least 1/2c to make it a little less sweet for the adults. Nice and tasty though.
