Homemade Lemonade Recipe
If you are looking for the best homemade lemonade recipe then you are in luck! This fresh lemonade recipe is a family favorite. My kids are always asking to make lemonade once the warm weather hits. I have to agree with them because warm weather puts me in the mood for a cold glass of lemonade.
I like this Homemade Lemonade recipe because it brings out the sour in the lemons while not being to sour to enjoy. This is seriously the best lemonade recipe ever and you will be making it all the time once you make it the first time!
My kids ask me to make this so often, that I normally make a double or triple batch of this lemonade. Not that it actually lasts much longer because the more I make the more they drink.! LOL, but will I figure its worth the try for getting ahead with their lemonade consumption.
