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!
I love this lemonade - it's got the perfect blend of lemon sour and vanilla musk. I use one or two more lemons than the recipe calls for because I like my lemonade nice and sour and I largely omit the rinds to avoid the bitterness of the lemon pith. I am always grabbing 10-12 lemons at the store to stock up for this recipe!
I have a vita-mix so I tried the recipe as is and it was too bitter. So I made another batch with 4 lemons pealed sugar and vanilla. Blended this and then added the water and replaced most of the water with ice. Yum! 5 stars with my adjustments.
Pretty excited about this recipe.. Never made Lemonade before and this recipe made it soo EASY! (and Yummy!). Lemon Trees everywhere.. and all those Lemon's go to waste. Grabbed 3 HUGE Lemons from the Neighbors tree.. and WHOLA! 10 min later Super Yummy Treat. Poured some in small Glasses added some raspberries and sliced strawberries and by the AM I'll have delicious Lemon Icy's! FABULOUS!
This lemonade is awesome as is. I've made it twice now once as written and the second time I only used 1/2 C sugar. I like my lemonade a little less sweet and a little more tart. Will definitely be a summer staple here!
Husband thinks this is delicious and I do too! I removed the peel and pith in the same manner that you peel a pineapple. This cuts out the bitterness. I added a splash of bottled lemon juice. I tripled it and added the zest of two whole lemons. I added the entire peel of half of one lemon.
