Fresh Homemade Lemonade

July 08, 2015
I know.  Homemade lemonade.

You are thinking...really? It's so easy! Why post a recipe for it?!

OK, let me ask you..have you ever made homemade lemonade?  No, not that powdered stuff you get at the grocery store.  Real lemonade from real lemons?

If you haven't, you need to. We are talking about some amazing stuff.

This is a really simple recipe that my mom gave me a long time ago. You can adjust it to your sweetness liking, but, below it what I stick with.  It's such a great treat on a hot, summer day. 

So, kick the powder to the door.  Go homemade all the way on this one!
