I like lemonade more sour than sweet. The ones at the store are just too sweet! Just so you get idea of my taste, the cup is usually half lemonade and half water.

I want to make my own b'c I'm starting to watch what I eat (I hate using the dreaded "D" word!) and I want to be able to control what goes in!

I would much appreciate your suggestions!

Have you tried a search? I just did a quick 'Google' and you should find something that'll suit. I like the ones that use simple syrup to sweeten to taste.

Yeah, I know I can always "google" something. Just wanted to get a "human" opinion I guess!

I get lots of requests for mine!

juice of 6 lemons, with pulp
6 cups water
1 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients.

Notes: Occasionally, a 7th lemon is necessary for that "just right" flavor. Also, juice the lemons on one of those multi-faceted juicers so that you get lots of pulp in the mix. Discard all seeds and membrane chunks, but keep the pulp. To get maximum juice from each lemon, roll the lemon on a cutting board or counter top before cutting, exerting enough pressure to loosen the innards. Also, I've never measured the juice, but I believe it amounts to about 1 cup of juice (including pulp); I can always use the 7th lemon for something else if I don't need it for the lemonade.

For a little added flavor, try slicing up both lemons and oranges and add to the lemonade. This is especially good the next day.

I found this recipe about 4 years ago in a magazine, it's the best lemonade ever.

In a 2 quart pitcher combine the juice from 6 large lemons (1 and 1/2 cups) and 2 limes (1/3 cup), 1 cup sugar and 6 cups water. Stir. Add 1 cup of fresh raspberries cover and chill overnight.

Add less sugar or more lemon juice if it's too sweet for you.

To make really good lemonade, add 2 thin sliced lemons to one gallon water and add about 1 1/2 cups to two cups sugar. Refridgerate. The next morning you will have wonderful lemonade. Since you want yours more sour, just add less sugar or you can use a sugar substitute.

Here's one I like:

1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups fresh lemon juice
1 TBL lemon zest
Lemon slices & fresh mint leaves for garnish

Combine the sugar & 1 cup water in asmall pan over medium heat & bring to a boil. Reduce the heat & simmer 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat & cool the syrup completely.
Combine the syrup w/the lemon juice & zest; add 8 cups cold water. Garnish & serve over ice. Makes about 2 1/2 qts.

Default Lemonade recipe

Looking for a good glass of lemonade. Not that it matters, but the lemons are Eureka, if it matters.
