Ingredients for Home Made Lemonade

  • Juice of 4 - 6 large lemons

How to Make Lemonade

  1. Squeeze the juice from the lemons. Sieve out any pips if necessary and then pour the juice into a serving jug. 
  2. Place the sugar in the saucepan with half cup of the water. Over a low heat, gently dissolve the sugar. Then when it is fully dissolved (usually takes 2-3 minutes) leave it to cool.
  3. Add the cooled sugar syrup mix to the lemon juice with the remaining water. Add more sugar to taste if necessary and then add the lemon slices. 
  4. Store the lemonade in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  5. When you are ready to serve, fill a glass with ice cubes and pour over the lemonade.

Did You Know

Lemonade is any of various sweetened beverages found around the world, all characterised by lemon flavour.

Most lemonade varieties can be separated into two distinct types: cloudy and clear; each is known simply as "lemonade" (or a cognate) in countries where dominant. 

Cloudy lemonade, generally found in North America and India, is a traditionally homemade drink made with lemon juice, water, and sweetener such as cane sugar or honey. 

A clear lemonade is a lemon flavoured carbonated soft drink which first appeared in the UK in 1833, and is also sold in Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. It should not be confused with Sprite, a lemon-lime flavoured soft drink.
