My Easy Limeade/Lemonade Recipe

-Both recipes are the same except for the type of fruit being used.

  • 2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice.  Usually 1 package of lemons/limes will cover it
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar (You can add more or less to taste)
  • Pitcher of water, 2 cups of which is boiled
  1. Pour 2 cups of water into a pot and bring it to a boil
  2. While the water is heating up, using a juicer or your hands squeeze two cups of lemon/lime juice
  3. Once the water reaches a boil, pour the water into a gallon pitcher and then add 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  Be sure to stir the sugar so that it completely dissolves into the water.
  4. Once you have your 2 cups of juice squeezed pour it into the pitcher and stir.
  5. Finally, add enough water to the pitcher so that it becomes full.  Then place the pitcher in the fridge to cool down.

Want to mix it up? Try adding berries or a little mint!

-Enjoy!
