This lemonade will take you right back to those hot childhood summer days. My Mam would make this for me when I was a child and it always hit the spot. It is a refreshing tasty drink that is so simple to make, also children will love getting involved too.


Serves: 4 

  • 3 large lemons
  • 1.8L water
  • 100g caster sugar (or to taste)

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hour marinating  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

  1. Peel the lemons, removing white pith. Cut peel into strips and juice the lemons. Add the juice and peels to a saucepan of cold water, about 3 pints.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add sugar to taste, and stir until dissolved.
  3. Strain through a sieve to remove peels. Let cool and then chill in fridge. Serve with ice cubes and thinly sliced lemons.

For pink lemonade, just add a splash of cranberry juice.
