Old Fashioned Homemade Lemonade

This is one of my favourite summer drinks. It is quick and easy to make and is the wettest drink I know.


8 frozen cubes of lemon juice
4 tbsps sugar
1 litre water



I have used frozen cubes of lemon juice because that is how we store all our excess lemons. But alternatively you could use fresh lemon juice and normal ice cubes to make the drink colder. There are approximately 2 cubes per lemon.

Place all the ingredients into a jug and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.


1. Use a blend of half lemon and half orange for a sweeter alternative

2. To each glass add the juice of half a lime and a few splashes of aromatic bitters

3. Add a little chopped mint or salad burnett
