Homemade lemonade tastes so much better than the frozen concentrate. This recipe is super simple and delicious.
Lemonade is a huge favorite at our house. In fact, the other night, hubs requested a date night stop at Chick-fil-A for lemonade instead of the Peet’s coffee that he would normally indulge in.
Thankfully, my dad has a Meyer lemon tree growing in his backyard so during lemon season, we get to drink lemonade to our heart’s content. I juice hundreds of lemons and freeze the juice for later. A delicious way to get your day’s supply of Vitamin C.
Here’s our recipe for lemonade that matches (or beats!) Chick-Fil-A anyday.
Lemonade like Chick-Fil-A Makes
- 1 1/2 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
- 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 5 cup water
- In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice and sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
- Stir in the water. Chill until ready to serve.
- Serve over crushed ice.
