Fresh Lemonade

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 5 quarts

There are no lemon trees on Long Island, but a summer picnic without lemonade is like Christmas without Santa. The recipe can be garnished with fresh fruit, such as raspberries.

  1. 3 cups fresh lemon juice (from 12 to 14 large lemons)
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. Ice cubes
  4. Lemon wedges, for garnish
  1. In a large glass bowl, combine the lemon juice, sugar and 4 quarts of water. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour the lemonade into pitchers and serve over ice, garnished with lemon wedges.
Make Ahead The lemonade can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.
