Hi Katie - that sounds nice :) It's summer here (45-50C) and I love lemon drinks so I might try it out soon when I get some lemons.

I loved it!!! Although I tried doubling it the 2nd time I made it. Something was wrong. Too sugary or something. Is this the type of recipe that can be doubled? Do you actually double "everything"?

Never had a problem doubling the recipe. You have to be sure you make a "real" simple syrup, plus lemons vary as to how tart they are. Lemons are the only variable I can think of. If it's too sweet, try using less of the simple syrup.

Not to gross you guys out but phlegmy means it causes a back up in the back of my throat of mucous(sp?) its really a pain cause it wont swallow down for hours maybe its an allergic reaction but I have no problems with lemons in any other recipe.Baking Fool?Is that what happens to you?

yeah it's pretty much like that. lemonade is supposed to be refreshing & it isn't if it's thick & syrupy with a really strong flavour. (imho)

Thanks for a nice recipe. The change is more out of necessity than anything else...

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, including pulp (remove seeds)
¾ cup granulated sugar (or the equivalent in Stevia for those of us who have problems with sugar.) Life Just Got A Whole Lot Sweeter
4 cups spring water
2 lemons

KATIE’S LEMONADE
(Serves 6)

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, including pulp (remove seeds)
¾ cup granulated sugar
4 cups spring water
2 lemons

Slice one of the lemons very, very thin (seeds removed) and set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ¾ cup of the water. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and you are left with a simple syrup. Remove from heat and stir in the thinly sliced lemon. Cover and refrigerate until fully chilled.

To serve, strain the chilled lemon syrup into a large pitcher, add the lemon juice, remaining water and the second lemon that has been cut into ¼-inch slices. Stir well and pour over ice.
