Best Lemonade You'll Ever Have

If you want some of the best lemonade in the whole world, you need to start with a really old recipe from England that begins by making a syrup.


Homemade Fresh Lemonade

3 cups sugar
3 cups water
3 cups lemon juice (approx. 12 lemons)
12 cups cold water

In a stock pot dissolve sugar in 3 cups water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and a syrup forms.  Let cool for an hour.  Add fresh lemon juice.  Slice lemon halves into rings and add to marinade.  Place in the refrigerator overnight for the lemonade to marinate.  Dilute lemon concentrate with water 4 to 1.  Serve over crushed ice and enjoy.

This is an old English recipe and one that truly is delicious.  This makes almost enough for the whole summer.
Give it a try, you will have the best Lemonade ever.

  2. This looks perfect! I love that it's a concentrate and will last a long time. This summer, it will sit in the fridge next to my iced coffee concentrate. What could be better?

  6. The easiest drink to make I suppose, and what you need is just sugar, water and lemon.

  14. It is Autumn here now in New Zealand but I am going to write this down in my note book and make some in the Spring. My mother used to make home made ginger beer and we used to store it under the house to ferment, it sometimes used to pop its corks. I have never made home made lemonade but it sounds delicious. Not sure if you have ginger beer in the USA, it is not like ginger ale, it is completely different and non alcoholic, no idea why they call it 'beer', probably because it still goes through a fermentation process.

  22. Marti ~ I have a very similar recipe with the difference being you add mint leaves to the cooling syrup. It truly is the best lemonade I've ever had and I'm sure yours is very similar. Great for a party. I'll have to give your recipe a try and compare the two. Thanks for sharing.

  36. I absolutely love lemonade but still do not understand, after you add the water, do you still add water again when you have a glass, I am not the brightest person DOROTHY grandmadotty0001@gmail.com

    1. No, you just enjoy. The water is already added to make the mix, then all you do is serve and enjoy.
