My husband was craving lemonade all day. I didn't have any lemons, so I just used the bottled juice and he really liked it. It was a little sweet for me, so I just added water. Thanks for an easy recipe!

I was really craving lemonade one night, so I found this recipe, and went to lemon squeezing. I don't really think it was worth the effort. I had to use more lemons than the recipe called for because it wasn't tart enough- but then I only drank half a glass and threw the rest away because the flavor wasn't quite right. It was the right amount of tartness, and the right amount of sweet- but there was something missing. At this point, store bought is better. Thanks anyway.

At first we thought it was too much sugar. But then we tried it and then it was fantastic. It was the perfect combination of water, sugar, and Lemons.

I found this quite refreshing and enjoyable to make it was also very tasty

For us, this was a quite sweet and honestly, too sweet to be "thirst quenching". I loved the exact measurements as it took the guess work out of making lemonade and it gave me a more accurate assessment of how I'll make it next time. Next time, I'll cut the sugar back by half. I think it'll be just right then.

I appreciate recipes like this that give you an actual measurement of juice rather than "the juice of x lemons." Sizes of fruit and their juiciness vary so much! I’ve also found I prefer lemonade made with simple syrup over just stirring in the sugar. However...I know everyone’s sweetness level varies, but 2/3 cup sugar is a LOT of sweetness for this amount of water and juice! I stopped at half that much, 1/3 cup, which proved to be just right.

I put just 1/3 cup sugar and it was awesome!!! Thank you for the great recipe!
