We love REAL lemonade! No powder substitute for me. Please give me the real stuff! And if you are looking for an alternative to gatorade just add a little salt and some calcium powder and you can be refreshed with electrolytes without any corn syrup or other nasty chemicals!

To make fresh lemonade you start by making a simple syrup. Basically dissolve equals parts of sugar and water. We do this one of two ways. You can put the sugar in a pan with the water on medium heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved or put the sugar in the bottom of your glass jar or pitcher and add hot water to it whisking it until it dissolves.

Then add your lemon juice and dilute with water to your desired tastes.

We like a ratio of 1 part sugar, 1 part water, 1 part lemon juice and then dilute with 4 parts water.

  1. Shelley Lewis – That little boy is my prouceis grandson and your daughter is just amazing I wish he could meet her he loves pretty girls, and she is beautiful in every way!! Please thank her from Drew’s Mom-Mom .her kindness is just so absolutely amazing. He has had his first surgery, and it was successful but he still isn’t able to see yet the Dr. is sure that his vision will return..but it still hurts to see him trying to find me when I am only a few feet away. The money she earned will be uesed for Dr. visits and hospital co-pays, etc., and it is so greatly appreciated. He is the most generous, loving little boy and is almost always happy and grateful. She sounds exactly the same. Thanks again so much!! You are all so appreciated.
