  1. Roll lemon on a flat surface, cut in half, and squeeze juice and pulp into mason jar. Pour 12 ounces water into the jar.
  2. Stir sugar and remaining 2 tablespoons water together in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Pour sugar mixture and ice into mason jar and stir.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Organic lemons are smaller in size than regular lemons you see in the store, so be careful as the ratio might be off. You may need to adjust the sugar amount to your personal preference.

Very nice! As the submitter suggests, adjust the lemon and sugar to taste. Because I like to eat my sugar rather than drink it, lol, I used equal sweetner in it's place, and that worked out grea...

This is the best homemade lemonade!!!! It's so good! I did add a little bit more sugar than it said to make it sweeter. I love this! It's delicious ??

Make this all the time. I also add mint all ground up Which I have gobs of in my garden and use Stevai= no calories and oh so tasty!

Remember to adjust the lemon juice & sugar to your taste, since we all have different opinions on this.

Super easy and awesome. I swapped out the sugar for 1 pack of stevia. (T2 Diabetic) :-)
