Spring has arrived, but here in Ohio, it still feels like winter. Most people are ready to pack up those winter coats and embrace the sunshine. One of the best ways to help you think warm thoughts is enjoying a cool glass of delicious lemonade. Instead of buying it in a can or bottle, why not make up a quick pitcher yourself? It's cheap, easy, and more tasty!

On a hunt for how to make lemonade ourselves, my husband and I stumbled upon a recipe from Paula Deen. I absolutely love Paula! She is amazing and you know her creations are delicious! I want to share this easy, inexpensive recipe with you!



Here's what you need:

  • 2 cups Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup HOT water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 gallon pitcher
  • 1 mixing spoon

Instructions

  1. Combine sugar with hot water in the gallon pitcher.
  2. Stir until sugar has completely dissolved.
  3. Add lemon juice and cold water to render the gallon.
  4. Stir to mix well.

Serve chilled over ice. Enjoy!

Try this out and let me know how you liked it!

      Great hub, may I suggest using grade B maple syrup in place of the sugar. It contains many vitamins and minerals and the natural sugar as well.It tastes great too!

      Welcome. Reminds me of the old saying, "when life gives you lemons make lemonade." Have you ever looked into lemonade used as a cure? Now, I am interested in lemonade, since I have a dwarf lemon tree, but need a sugar free, aspartame free (no equal or sweet-n-low) recipe. I know when mixed with brandy it helps with soar throats, but you have me wondering if there is more? remember to have fun, fun, fun

      Hot water is a great idea for making lemonade that doesn't have a bunch of undissolved sugar at the bottom!
