Okay, I cheat a little bit, in that I use bottled lemon juice rather than fresh-squeezed lemons. It’s a lot less work and tastes almost as good. I also like to use raw sugar which adds to the “old-fashioned” flavor.

Old Fashioned Lemonade Recipe

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar (Can use regular white sugar, if you prefer— and you might want up to a cup of sugar. We like our lemonade on the tart side.)
  • 1/2 sliced lemon (This is really just for garnish. The lemonade tastes the same without it.)
  • 2 quarts cold water

Stir well. Raw sugar requires more stirring than regular sugar because the crystals are bigger.

Serve over ice… and enjoy!
