Not freshly squeezed, but nearly as good!

Desperate for something sweet to drink one day, I remembered I saw my friend Sara in Austin make lemonade from bottled lemon juice.

Perhaps not a new idea for some of you, this was revolutionary to me, as I had only previously made lemonade from powdered mix.  Or…err…a pouch of “lemonade flavored” kool-aid.  I’m not proud.

Much easier than squeezing your own lemons….much tastier than the powdered stuff.  Give it a try on a hot day! 

Here’s how:
Put one cup of sugar, and 3/4 cup of bottled lemon juice in your pitcher.
Pour in one cup of boiling water.
Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add 4-5 cups of cold water to dilute.  
Serve cold over ice.
Feeling ambitious?  Fancy it up by throwing in some lemon slices!

  1. Awwwww!!!! I got a shout out and I was a called a friend. How nice! I like your method better than mine. I’m guessing everything mixes together better with the boiling water.
