Not too tart, not too sweet, not too watery - here's the perfect recipe for lemonade. To get the most juice out of your lemons, bring the lemons to room temperature before juicing.

How to Make It

Combine juice and sugar in a one-gallon container; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in water. Serve over ice.

Way too sour. It was very watery. When I added more sugar in, it was still too sour. I like to make my own lemonade, but when a friend told me to try this recipe, I was excited. I was very disappointed. This drink that is supposed to be relaxing, attracted bees, mosquitos and flies. I needed to check every time for a bee in my glass. You should take this awful recipe off of your website. I don't mean to be rude, however, this is my opinion, and this lemonade is in a never-again situation.

My teenager thought it could be sweeter but I enjoyed it just as it is - a little tart but delicious. Perfect for drinking on a hot day around the pool.
