Homemade Lemonade

A few weeks ago I posted my Strawberry Basil Lemonade recipe and then realized I’ve never posted my basic freshly squeezed lemonade recipe.  It only has three ingredients!  Lemons, sugar and water.  I am always in awe over how just a few simple items can be turned into something so delicious. 

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I still love the powdered Country Time Lemonade every now and then, but homemade is ALWAYS better.  It takes a little bit of prep but, my boys love to help squeeze the lemons while I’m making the simple syrup. 

Here's a freshly squeezed lemonade recipe that's super simple and totally quenching!  |  My Name Is Snickerdoodle
