My grandma had a few homemade drink recipes. My favorite drink was her lemonade recipe. There is nothing more refreshing in the spring and summer like a good old fashioned, fresh-squeezed lemonade. The kind of lemonade you’d love to add a little extra sugar to when you were a kid because it was slightly tart.
When I saw Men In Black I had to laugh you know that part where Edgar wants more sugar? That was us as kids. But, now I tend to like my lemonade right in between tart and sweet. How do you like your lemonade?
She had a lemon tree in her back yard. Calling us to come to pick the lemons when they were ripe. Sending us up the ladder to pick, then gently had them down to her as she added them to the basket.
She would make lemon meringue pies, lemon bread, lemon cake, and our all-time favorite her ” best lemonade recipe“. Although, I don’t have my grandma’s original recipe I sourced one to share with you that I found that was almost exactly like hers.
You’ll need a bunch of lemons, sugar, and water.
Now, there are juicy lemons and juicier lemons. Did you know that lemons come in many sizes and types? I didn’t realize how many types of lemons there are. I mainly knew about Meyer lemons. Perfect for juicing into your drink recipes or other recipes.
One trick if your lemons aren’t giving you the juice you want for your drink recipe try rolling the others prior to cutting and juicing.
When you are done take your lemonade onto the back porch and enjoy it!
Are you ready to try making homemade lemonade? You might enjoy a box of lemons to make your lemonade recipes with or to gift someone. Another place to consider getting lemons or, if your traveling is visiting a local lemon orchard. This farm, Limoniera is located in the Santa Paula, Ventura California area and has been established there since 1893.
