Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

Lucky Lemonade


Freshly squeezed lemonade is a yummy way to cap off hot, humid, southern days. When made right, the tartness is perfectly balanced with the sweetness. We’ve got a good setup at my house: my son squeezes the lemons, and I get the rest ready. We’ve been playing around with this recipe for a while now and have finally found its sweet spot, so to speak … enjoy!

–  8 cups water
–  1-1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemons (pulp is okay, but seeds are not)
–  1-3/4 cups granulated sugar

1.  Fill a pitcher with 8 cups of water.
2.  Add the sugar to the water, and go ahead and stir it together. The sugar will
dissolve by the time your lemon juice is ready.
3.  Add the lemon juice to the pitcher and stir together.
4.  Refrigerate and then enjoy. We like it served super cold.

FYI: This lemonade is a good mixer for lemon drops; just add vodka (we keep ours in the freezer). It’s also good if you add a sprig of mint, sans liquor.

1-3/4 cups granulated sugar
