I'm drinking this lemonade right now. It's really good! I used normal sugar and just waited a little while longer for it to dissolve. I'll make this again!

S-O-U-R SOUR! I used only five lemons and still was forced to add two cups of water and a 1/2 cup of white sugar to this recipe. The brown sugar does give it a nice flavor, but the ratios of sugar, water, and lemon are extremely off on this one.

It tastes very good, but my 5 year old wanted to know why it was "brownish". Next time I would probably use 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white sugar. I dissolved the sugar with a half cup of hot water & then added lots of ice.

The brown sugar was very interesting in this recipe! It was indeed tasty, I drank the whole thing and got a bit queasy x.x I personally prefer white suger, but it was definately worth a shot! Be sure to freeze lemon juice/lemonade for ice cubes so the drink you worked so hard for doesn't get watered down!

Good... but I used splenda instead of sugar. Daughter hated it and Son loved it. Oh Well. It was good.

I love this recipe, the brown sugar is what makes it! First I added the 1 1/2 cups water to the 1/2 cup brown sugar and stirred then let it sit. I used 5 lemons instead of 6 (I squeezed until I had about 1 cup of juice) and added this to the brown sugar and water inside of a pitcher. I tasted it after I was done and the tart after taste told me to add more water. Added the ice cubes and put in the fridge to chill. It's a hit at parties! Honestly, based on other reviews this seems to be a hit or miss based entirely on personal taste. Don't be afraid to experiment with different proportions and adding things. I know next time I am probably going to add some mint! Hope this helps!

quite a disapointment, turned out very brown that people didn't want to try it, and it tasted too sweet and felt like pure suger. i feel dizzy.

this recipie wasnt as easy as it should be to make. lemonade should be easier than this! other than the process which isnt worth it, its way too sour, and the brown sugar ruins it. do NOT make this lemonade!!
