This lemonade has an excellent flavor, with just a subtle hint of vanilla, though it turned out a little too bitter for my tastes. I omitted the rinds and added finely grated lemon zest instead, but next time I'll either skip this step entirely or maybe use the zest from a single lemon only, to counteract the bitterness. With that minor enhancement, I'll bet this lemonade turns into a five-star rating in my recipe box.

mmmmmm yummy! Im new to making homemade lemonade so I skipped the rind part and just blended the pulp and juice in a blender with the sugar water. I like it...the vanilla adds a great touch!

It's my pleasure to be the first to rate this recipe. With just a hint of vanilla aftertaste, it tastes something like if Orange Julius were to make lemonade? It has just enough sweetness to bring out the vanilla flavor, but not too much to overwhelm the tartness of the lemon. Also, I'm not sure if the recipe is intended to use the entire lemon rind and not just the zest(?), as lemon pith is quite bitter. I HIGHLY recommend using Meyer lemons if you can find them. They're sweeter and much more fragrant; plus, they have minimal pith, so you can put the rinds directly into the blender without zesting!
