A must have


There should not be any one who does not know how to make a lemonade. This is the one recipe that universally every body has to have. So here it is.

I also think every single person must have a lemon tree. Non negotiable, so here is how you can grow one from seed.


Serves: 8
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups Sugar
  • Lemon or Lime Peel Shavings
  • 1 1/4 cups Lemon or Lime Juice
  • Ice Cubes

To make the Limeade or Lemonade Base

In a saucepan, (create a simple sugar syrup) heat and stir water and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let stand for 20 minutes.

Add peel and juice to the sugar syrup; pour into a glass bottle, cover & chill for several hours before serving.

For each glass of served lemonade, fill serving glass with ice cubes. Combine 1/2 glass water, & 1/2 glass lemonade or limeade base and stir until well blended. Pour lemonade over ice & serve.


  • For a Lemonade Spritzer, use sparkling water instead of still water.
  • For an Alcoholic Lemon Spritzer use Champagne instead of Sparkling water.
