The Best Ever Lemonade Recipe

We can’t wait for spring and summer, so I had to go ahead and make this deliciously summer lemonade. It’s quick and easy, and beats store bought any day. I used organic lemons and a hint of vanilla to make it extra special.


The Best Ever Lemonade Recipe


1 cup freshly squeezed organic lemon juice, 6 organic lemons
1 cup white sugar (I passed on raw because I didn’t want the hint of molasses flavor)
1 cup filtered water
6 cups filtered water
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 – 3 drops yellow food coloring (optional)


1. Place 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil to dissolve sugar. Stir until it is dissolved, and remove from heat. Let cool.

2. Combine sugar water, lemon juice, water and vanilla extract in a 2 quart pitcher. Stir to combine. Serve over ice and enjoy!
