You can use a combination of lemon and lime, or lemon and orange, or lemon, lime AND orange! 3/4 cup is about 3 large lemons, but measure it because you don't want it too tart!

I very much enjoyed this recipe. I love lemonade in general. I did have to add more lemons and sugar but mostly because I enjoy a more strong lemon taste. Very easy! Read More

I used only lemons and found this to be way too bitter. I read in another recipe that salt might help but it didn't noticeably improve the taste. Maybe the trick is to use oranges and limes but I'm not anxious to try this one again. Read More

This lemonade was quick and easy but not enough lemon for me. I felt like I was drinking lemon flavor kool-aid with a lemon added. Read More
