How to make Homemade Lemonade.

There is nothing like a freshly Homemade Lemonade on a hot Summer day. If like me a perfect chill time meal will be enjoying some Fried chicken wings , BBQ Cauliflower while washing it down with a glass of homemade lemonade then this recipe is for you.

Since the lockdown has been lifted and we can now finally enjoy a bit of sun with our Families. Therefor there is no better time to make a fresh pitcher of lemonade I would say.

Homemade Lemonade Recipe
Refreshing Lemonade

Lemonade is one of the easiest drinks to make, this drink only needs three ingredients (Lemon, sugar and Water ). The hardest part to making this recipe will be our Simple syrup if that can be classified as difficult. A simple recipe is a combination of water and Sugar.

HOW DO YOU SWEETEN LEMONADE

I use a simple syrup to sweeten my lemonade, simple syrup is a combination of boiled sugar and water. Although you can simply add granulated sugar directly but this will not give it a smooth finish like the syrup does.

CAN LEMON CONCENTRATE BE USED

As with most recipe you get the best result when using fresh ingredients. You can totally use lemon concentrate however I highly recommend freshly squeezed lemons using a citrus squeezer to extract the juice.

HOW DO YOU STORE LEMONADE

If this refreshing homemade lemonade makes it into the next day, (it Just may not ) your best option is to store in the fridge. You can divide the the undiluted mixture and store part in the fridge then dilute the other half with water before serving.

TIPS FOR MAKING HOMEMADE LEMONADE

  1. Ensure you use freshly squeezed Lemon juice, it tastes fresher and does not compare with concentrate.
  2. Use other fruits like mango, Pineapple, berries etc to add extra flavour to your Lemonade.
  3. Ensure you don’t pour all the simple syrup at once, taste as you go along so its not too sweet or too acidic .
