Homemade Lemonade


After a long summers day there is nothing better than to put your feet up and have a glass of cold refreshing lemonade.

This is so quick and easy to make you will wonder why you haven’t made it before. You don’t have to be totally accurate and a lot will depend on your personal taste.

This is how I like my lemonade:

You will need:

  • Per 1 Pint/ 500ml of cold water
  • Juice of 1 large Lemon
  • 1 – 2 tbsp Granulated Sugar.


  • Mix the juice and sugar into the water until the sugar dissolves
  • Pour into a tall glass and serve with ice and a slice (and a sprig of mint if you have some).

You can keep this in the fridge for a day of two, but is best drunk as it is made.

This is best served chilled.

If you find your lemonade a bit too sharp simply add another spoonful of sugar.
