Recipe of the Week..."Mike's Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade"

Hi, All! As promised in my last post, here is the recipe for fresh-squeezed lemonade that my main squeeze, (pun intended!), makes. Everyone LOVES it when Mike makes lemonade...it's a real crowd pleaser and so refreshing on a hot summer day!

Mike's Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade

  • 6 lemons
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 quarts ice water

Wash lemons and slice thin. Place in a stainless or enamel mixing bowl and add sugar. Pound with a wooden spoon or mallet to squeeze juice from lemon rings. Stir to make syrup. Transfer lemon ring/syrup mixture to glass pitcher and add ice water, stirring well to dissolve sugar. Add 10 - 12 ice cubes before serving. Serve within 6 hours for best flavor. I double or triple the recipe, (in photo above the recipe has been doubled), when I'm serving a large crowd. Enjoy!

Have a blessed day!
