I'm drinking this lemonade right now. It's really good! I used normal sugar and just waited a little while longer for it to dissolve. I'll make this again! Read More

S-O-U-R SOUR! I used only five lemons and still was forced to add two cups of water and a 1/2 cup of white sugar to this recipe. The brown sugar does give it a nice flavor but the ratios of sugar water and lemon are extremely off on this one. Read More

It tastes very good but my 5 year old wanted to know why it was "brownish". Next time I would probably use 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white sugar. I dissolved the sugar with a half cup of hot water & then added lots of ice. Read More

Good... but I used splenda instead of sugar. Daughter hated it and Son loved it. Oh Well. It was good. Read More

I love this recipe the brown sugar is what makes it! First I added the 1 1/2 cups water to the 1/2 cup brown sugar and stirred then let it sit. I used 5 lemons instead of 6 (I squeezed until I had about 1 cup of juice) and added this to the brown sugar and water inside of a pitcher. I tasted it after I was done and the tart after taste told me to add more water. Added the ice cubes and put in the fridge to chill. It's a hit at parties! Honestly based on other reviews this seems to be a hit or miss based entirely on personal taste. Don't be afraid to experiment with different proportions and adding things. I know next time I am probably going to add some mint! Hope this helps! Read More

The brown sugar was very interesting in this recipe! It was indeed tasty I drank the whole thing and got a bit queasy x.x I personally prefer white suger but it was definately worth a shot! Be sure to freeze lemon juice/lemonade for ice cubes so the drink you worked so hard for doesn't get watered down! Read More

I made this yesterday and my husband didn't know what it was! I thought it was good but I did change it after he was confused about the taste. I made a whole pitcher then added white sugar. It tasted so much better. The next time I make it I think I'll start off with half brown sugar and half brown first. Also I peeled some of the lemons and added them into the pitcher. Read More
