Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Profuse amounts of sugar in this recipe. End result did taste fine and dandy, but only a inconsiderable amount was produced. Would recommend , however my husband and I found after large experimentation, it was better consumed in small amounts with sparkling water to dilute. But overall a flavoursome result, especially tasty with cut fruit such as kiwi. pears and mint with crushed ice. If we were to do this again, we would defiantly reduce sugar and cross reference other websites just to see if amount of sugar amounts could be reduced. - Jane, 57 , HIghgrove UK
This recipe is absolute liquid sugar. I have no idea how this is even called lemonade or how it has 5 stars. I took a sip and I actually had to spit it out because the amount of sugar triggered my gag reflex. I added 5 more CUPS of water and another 1/2 cup of lemon juice which made it great with lots of ice. If I could give this recipe zero stars, I would.
OMG this is sooo good!! You gotta try it -- with real sugar! You might want to make a double or triple batch because this recipe only makes 2 cups -- not nearly enough to last a day, and my kids and I drink a lot of lemonade during the summer!
This is a very good tasting lemonade. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is extremely sweet. I love sweets, but the amount of sugar in this recipe is too much. As it is, might work well if using limes (limeade). For lemons I would cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, everything else is fine. Make double and triple batches, I gulped this recipe in only a few minutes; so refreshing!
Loved this!!I have to make a huge batch though, 2 servings isnt enough. And people 3/4 sugar when using real lemons is not extreme.
Use Splenda, Aspartame, stevia, or saccharine?
Sounds really good; but Oh my goodness - over 300 calories in one glass?
good and very tangy but only made 1 large glass :(
How much lemon juice? I use the large lemons that I have in TX.
My husband and I use 5 cups of water 1 cup of fresh lemon juice and either 1 cup of sugar or splenda. We bring the splenda down to 3/4 cup. My husband likes it tarter.linmatte, Winter Haven, FL
