Whether you want to squeeze extra lemons to make your drink more tart and “lemony,” or you want to add extra sugar for a kick, or even spice it up-literally-just one nice thing about making homemade lemonade is that you can easily ensure the drink tastes exactly how you want it to.

(P.S. This recipe should allow you to make about a gallon or a bit more.)

Simple Homemade Lemonade Recipe


2 1-2+ Gallon Pitchers (or a separate juicer and 1 pitcher)

Juicer (if you own 1, but this can be made by simply rolling the lemons against a hard surface and cutting them in half before squeezing the juice out…ideally using a strainer to catch seeds)

Knife and Cutting Board For Cutting Lemons

Ice Tray/Ice Dispenser


24 Fresh Lemons

3/4 Gallon Water (Your choice-tap, bottled, whatever you like)

1 Cup of Pure Cane Sugar

1/4 Cup Ice Cubes


After you have washed and sliced your lemons in half to prepare them for juicing, the 1st thing you must do is “juice” 23 of your lemons individually into a separate container.

2nd, fill the pitcher you will use as your drink pitcher with 3/4 Gallon of Water.

3rd, cut your last lemon whole into thin circular slices (approximately 1-2 dozen) and drop these lemon slices into your drink container with water.

4th, pour your freshly squeezed lemon juice into the drink container with water and lemon slices and mix thoroughly.

5th, add your 1 cup of pure cane sugar to your homemade lemonade mixture and mix everything again very well.

6th and last step, add your 1/4 cup ice cubes to your homemade lemonade, stir once more, and then the beverage will be ready to drink once it has cooled to a temperature you will enjoy!

PRO TIP-You can add more lemons if you want a stronger and more “lemony” beverage, and you can also adjust the sugar ratio accordingly based on how sweet you like your lemonade, plus add more water and/or ice if you want to tone down the lemon tartness without adding sugar or reducing the number of lemons.
