This lemonade is more tart than sweet like pink lemonade usually is. I served this at a party and everyone loved it...even the kids that were there! My husband who doesn't like cranberry juice like it too! Read More

i have to say that the sugar was just far to much i only used 1 1/2 cups and it was still very sweet. the cranberry made it 'clacky' and covered any nice lemony flavour which may heve been there. I added just a small amout of rasberry juice (juste nought to make it pink) and my family and i loved it. Read More

I certainly hope bdh76 didn't put 9 cups of sugar in this!! That would definitely make it sweet- haha! I only put 1 1/2 as opposed to 2 everything else I followed exactly. This turned out to be more of a cranberryade for me though... I only put the 1 cup in but you can taste the cranberry over the lemon. If you want it to look more pink you'll have to add a few drops of red food coloring too. All in all a VERY tasty drink though!! Read More

Yum!!! This is my first review on the site though I've tried hundreds of recipes. I thought the lemonade a little sweet. Probably don't need 9 cu. sugar. Otherwise definitely a keeper! Read More

This lemonade is a great addition to any gathering. I use Splenda instead of sugar and it's just as good. Thank you for this refreshing drink. Read More

This lemonade is quite refreshing! I used a bottled lemon juice (which I purchased from Aldi's) rather than using fresh lemon juice and it tasted great in this lemonade. I also used a raspberry-cranberry juice which I purchased from Aldi's. The amount of ingredients I used were... 1-cup of sugar 4-1/2 cups of water 1-cup of lemon juice and 3/4 cup of cranberry juice. This will make exactly 56 ounces of the best tasting lemonade. Tonni thank you for posting this recipe. It's definitely a keeper! Read More

This was a really good tart-sweet lemonade. We have juiced a bunch of lemons and are now freezing the juice in 2cup measures just to make this! Read More

Hubs loves cranberry juice and he loved this too - me not so much. While I'm not particularly crazy about cranberry juice that wasn't even the issue. Pretty and pink but too sweet for me. Read More
