Reviews forAunt Frances' Lemonade
"I make mine with simple syrup by mixing the water and sugar in a pan, bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Then cool before mixing with juices. It makes for a smother drink. Try it."
"This sounds amazing! I would have never thought to put orange juice in lemonade. Can't wait to try this!! YUM!"
"This is the best lemonade! I like to add mint leaves for garnish."
"Delicious and refreshing!"
"This is the recipe I use. My kids call it Mom's Famous Lemonade! I don't use the fruit for garnish so I only use 4 of each (Sometimes 3 of each because the fruit is kinda big) and if I want to cut back on time or the cost I will use a little frozen orange juice concentrate instead of juicing the oranges. Sorry, I don't have a measured amount of OJ mix to give, I just add and taste."
"This was a great lemonade! I made with 1 1/2 cups sugar and it was plenty sweet. I added some sliced strawberries for color. It was beautiful in my glass pitcher. I am making this again for my next get together. Has anyone tried it with Stevia???? I think I will try it and see how it taste."
"My family loved it when I made it"
"refreshing and easy, but i don't care for the oranges - too sweet. i think less sugar would have helped."
"Would it work to serve this without any sweetener and guests could add sugar or artificial sweetener as they wanted? Sounds like it would be 5 stars."
"Thirst quenching and easy to make!"
