"Ah, the taste of summer. This classic lemonade recipe is the one my mom used to make for me when I was little. It's the perfect combination of sweet and tart! When using a clear pitcher, adding a few of the juiced lemon halves makes it look prettier."

Awesome. When I have time I boil a couple of the cups of water together with the sugar. It dissolves the sugar for no grainy taste. I bought a Krups juicer just to make lemonade. Makes this a breeze. Thanks :)
I did not think this was as good as everyone makes it out to be. The six lemons made about a cup of lemon juice but I dont think that was enough. The drink was very bland and boring. I like lemonade to have more "life", more body. This just tasted like sweetened lemon water, (yes, i know thats what lemonade is)but it was far from good. My four year old daughter loved it, but then again, she loves anything she helps make. Next time i will try another recipe. I hope to have more luck.
EXTREMELY simple. Was able to whip some up in about 5 minutes. I put the lemons in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds to warm them up a bit. I then used a glass juicer to squeeze the juice out (bought the juicer at Walmart for about $3 or $4). My 4 year old said it was "mmmmmmmmm". Followed the recipe exactly. Thanks Erin for the great recipe!
I thought this was very good and it beats the store bought kind by a mile!!! I did think it was slightly too sweet, but that is very easily modified. I will definitely make this again!!
This lemonade was simply delicious. Sometimes the basics really are the best. I used an electric juicer, and it really speeded up the process, and also gave me about 1.5 cups of lemon juice (I still used 1 cup for the recipe). Before I added the sugar, I melted it with a little bit of water in a pot to form a syrup so it wouldn't be so gritty in the lemonade. It worked. A fantastic recipe!
Great, straight forward recipe. I don't have a juicer so I peeled the lemons and used my hand blender to puree. Then I strained the juice and used Splenda in place of the sugar. Nice blend of sweet and tart. Delicious!
We are huge lemonade fans and this recipe is darn near perfect. Just exactly the right amount of tart and sweet. We really liked this alot. Thanks for sharing.
I like mine a little tarter, so I added extra lemon juice.

The key to this lemonade is keeping the lemon pulp. Yum!
The refreshing, sweet-tart taste of summer is just a squeeze away.
