One lemon Lemonade – easy recipe

Easy Lemonade

It’s getting hot and the kids are going to be running around crazy. Friends are always thirsty and you don’t want to have to offer milk…

So what can you make that is quick, easy and thrifty?

One Lemon Lemonade!

In fact you don’t even need a real lemon!

What you need:

  • One lemon (optional) slice half of lemon
  • 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs Citric Acid (we found our in the bulk spices at Fred Meyer)
  • 3 tbs Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbs Lemon Extract (use imitation)
  • 3 quarts water
  • couple cups of ice
Add all the ingredients and stir. Add the slices of the half of the lemon. Squeeze the other half into the pitcher. Be careful of seeds. If it is too sweet you can add more lemon juice, or Citric Acid. Then next time cut back on sugar. If it is too acidic, then add some more sugar. Poor and enjoy! Don’t forget to save the lemon slices because you can leave them in the pitcher and make another batch!
