The Best Summer Lemonade

  1 rater(s)

No need to set up a lemonade stand in front of your house because this won’t even make it out there. People will drink it before you get the chance to sell it! Fresh-squeezed lemonade is one of the best beverages to enjoy during the summer months. It brings back memories of hot afternoons playing outside with your friends. Mom would pour you a glass of tart, thirst-quenching deliciousness, and it was nothing short of magical.

Mom probably wasn’t shy with the sugar, people. She probably loaded that pitcher up with a healthy amount of granulated sugar or simple syrup. This recipe takes a step in a healthier direction, replacing simple syrup with raw agave nectar. It also uses freshly squeezed lemon juice. You know, one of the best parts about getting older is that you realize how simple it is to make lemonade out of lemons. Yes, they can occasionally be pricey in the store, depending on the season, but we encourage you to befriend a neighbor or two with lemon trees. Some neighbors even leave boxes of excess lemons out because they’ll go bad if they just leave them on the tree and let them fall.

The secret to any great lemonade is establishing a little bit of sweetness that doesn’t overpower the sour punch of the lemons. Additionally, you want to evenly combine sweetener with the water and lemon juice. Make sure that you are actively stirring as you pour the agave into the pitcher. Liven up your lemonade pitcher by adding fresh lemon slices!
