Good recipes for fresh-squeezed lemonade include Paula Deen's lemonade and Ina Garten's fresh lemonade from the Food Network. Another good recipe is Cooking Light's three-ingredient fresh-squeezed lemonade.
Ina Garten's recipe calls for blending the required ingredients together. Pour 1 cup of the juice from 5 to 6 lemons into a blender along with 1/2 cup of superfine sugar, 4 cups of water and 1 cup of crushed ice. Blend until the ingredients are well-combined. Add more superfine sugar if necessary, and serve the lemonade with ice.
To make Paula Deen's recipe, dissolve 2 cups of sugar in 1 cup of hot water in a gallon container. Stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves, then add 2 cups (approximately 12 lemons worth) of freshly squeezed lemon juice and enough cold water to fill up the container. Once the ingredients are well-mixed, serve it with ice. Top the individual lemonade glasses with lemon slices and mint sprigs.
To make Cooking Light's simple fresh-squeezed lemonade, squeeze about 20 lemons or 3 cups of fresh lemon juice into a container, and stir in 2 1/4 cups of sugar. Once the sugar dissolves, whisk in 12 cups of chilled water, and serve the drink with ice.
