Luckily, Fresh squeezed lemonade is quick and easy to make at home, and you are able to control how sweet or tangy you make it!! I like my lemonade lip puckering good! The kind that makes your mouth water just thinking about how tangy it is!!
By making a lemonade syrup, you are able to customize each glass of lemonade simply by adjusting the amount of water you add. I love that! It also makes it easier to take to BBQ's. Just make it up, pop on the lid and you are ready to go! When you get to the BBQ you just need to add water. You can do that in a pitcher or in individual glasses. Lemonade syrup is very versatile like that!
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade is what I'm bringing to our big virtual #SundaySupper Summer BBQ today! This event is being co-hosted by Jennie of The Messy Baker and Melanie of Melanie Makes. Thank you for hosting our virtual BBQ Jennie and Melanie!!

- 1 and 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel
- 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice - you'll need about 8 to 10 lemons. I use an electric Citrus Juicer to make quick work of squeezing the lemons
- Put 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest into a large jar (at least 1 quart) with a tight fitting lid. Add 1 1/2 cups very hot water and secure lid. Shake jar until sugar dissolves.
- Add 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice and put lid back on tightly. Refrigerate until chilled and ready to use.
- When ready to serve, you can make a pitcher full of lemonade by pouring 2 cups lemon syrup into a pitcher and adding at least 4 cups cold water. Give it a taste and add more water to your liking.
- For single servings, pour 1/4 cup lemon syrup into an 8 ounce or larger glass and add at least a 1/2 cup of cold water. Add more water as desired. I like mine tart, so the measurements given should yield a lemonade that will make you pucker up! Enjoy!
Prep Time: 15 mins.
