Hey fab housewives! Here’s my favorite fresh-squeezed lemonade recipe- made with all-natural sweeteners. I love to blend in fresh strawberries when in season, or soak in some yummy flavorings like fresh cucumber, melon, or mint. This is perfect for a morning football party, and those who enjoy the occasional adult beverage, can simply add a shot of vodka. DELISH!!
- 3/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
- 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
Make simple syrup by heating the agave and water in a small saucepan until the liquids have fully combined.
Meanwhile, use a juicer or citrus squeezer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
