Excellent, easy to make recipe. Just the right tartness to make a refreshing lemonade drink.

MY REVIEW

I love lemonade that is slightly tart and this is excellent and so easy to make. I used the last of mine up to 2 weeks and it was still delicious.

We winter in Gilbert and the kids have a lemon tree. This recipe is excellant. I mix up a big batch and put 2-2/3 to 3 cups syrup in freezer bags so I have a quick mix when company stops by. Just made a fresh batch tonight so thought I would leave the comment. I finally wrote this recipe in my book so I wouldn't have to keep coming back to look it up! definately a favorite!

MY REVIEW

I recently made this lemonade for my daughter's baby shower and it was a hit. The day was extremely hot and this is a refreshing drink. I even made it a bit early and froze it with good results. To serve, I used a punch bowl and had made an ice ring with lemon rind roses and blueberries (It's a boy!) as well as ice cubes with small lemon slices to keep from diluting it.

Can you freeze the syrup to use later? The recipe doesn't say. That's a lot of syrup to use in one week!
