Ice Cold Lemonade

There's nothing like a tall glass of ice cold lemonade during a hot summer day! My absolute favorite is served at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, AL. During football season it's hard to pass up a trip to the corner for some lemonade. I found a couple of recipes online and tweaked them a little to come up with this recipe. It really does taste a lot like the kind served there. It's pretty strong and will absolutely withstand the ice and keep the flavor. Here it goes.


You will need a lemon juicer of some kind. I used a hand held device but if you don't have the tools just squeeze it out with your hands using a fork.


You need to cut the lemons in half then squeeze the juice out into a measuring cup.


You will need about 2 cups of lemon juice.



Strain the juice while you pour it into your pitcher just to make sure to keep the seeds out.


Then, add about 1 1/2 cups of sugar.


Stir well.


Add 4 cups of water and about 1 1/2 cups of ice. Stir again and you're done!! Oh....so good!!

I couldn't resist.

I miss Toomer's Corner lemonade!! I have the TC recipe where you have to make sugar water, etc. This looks like a lot less trouble and just as good! I can't wait for my kids to experience Toomer's Corner!
Tip: put your lemons in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds and you can get more juice out of them.

I've been looking for a recipe for homemade lemonade. I just bought the juicer from PC and have been waiting to use it.

About how many lemons will give you 2 cups of lemon juice?

Also, does anyone know of a way to cut down the acid found in lemonade? That really makes me sound so old, but I can't really take all of the acid from lemons and oranges. :)

I think it took about 15 lemons to make 2 cups. It really just depends on the size of the lemon. This lemonade is very strong so you can always add more water if you'd like to dilute it. Personally, I love it stout! Not sure on a way to cut down on the the acid. :(
