Classic Lemonade

Classic Lemonade | On The Creek

This might look familiar because I did a similar post last year about my classic lemonade. With summer quickly approaching, though, it's time to take a second look at this lemonade! This is the perfect recipe to get you through those hot days. I also revised the recipe a little, by using less sugar.

I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't always the biggest fan of making homemade lemonade. In fact, I used to avoid it at all costs. The lemon squeezing sounded completely terrible. I didn't have time to squeeze lemons forever! I came across an electric juicer in our things when we moved and decided to give it a try one day. That citrus juicer changed my life forever! It can juice lemons in minutes! I went from avoiding lemonade at all costs to looking like a professional!

A summertime classic!

Total time: 5 minutes

Yield: roughly 64 ounces


  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 6 Cups Water

Cooking Directions

  1. To make simple syrup:
  2. In a small saucepan, mix 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup sugar. Heat until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Let cool and pour into the bottom of a pitcher.
  4. Add fresh lemon juice and add water to fill. Stir to combine. Chill and enjoy!


Note: I put in the recipe to let the simple syrup cool before putting it in the pitcher. This is only because the simple syrup gets super hot. So hot that I'm concerned with it cracking a plastic pitcher. Because I have no patience whatsoever, I used a glass pitcher. That allowed me to add the syrup immediately.
