Homemade Lemonade, so refreshing and delicious

Those days you can buy lemonade in every supermarket but have you ever tried to a real homemade lemonade? It is so much easier than you imagine and the taste is delicious.

Homemade Lemonade

The essential ingredients are lemons, water and any sweetener (sugar, agave syrup or stevia). Also, you can add herbals like mint, elderflower, lavender, sweet wood-roof or rose petals. Alternative you can try fresh fruits e.g. raspberries, blueberries, watermelon or peach. Since everybody has a different taste, I would like to suggest that you play with the ingredients until you developed your receipt for your homemade lemonade.

Ingredients for homemade lemonade


Preparation for homemade lemonade

To be able to produce more than one glass of lemonade, I bought a few glass bottles last year. These are easy to fill and to clean since they have a wide opening. Lemonade should be served cold. Either you have ice cubes available or some space in the fridge to cool down the beverage.

Mint and lemons for lemonade


Three lemons per liter

sweetener, we used agave syrup

elderflower, fresh  10 grams per liter


lavender, fresh 10 grams per liter


mint, fresh 20 grams per liter


Firstly squeeze the lemons and filter the lemon seeds. Wash the herbals or fruits you would like to add. Cut the herbals or fruits if necessary. Add a little water and the sweetener. Fill with cold water. The lemonade tastes the best when you give it two hours to let the herbals or fruit infuse. Taste the drink and add sweetener if needed.

It is very practical to take the bottles to a BBQ or a picknick too. If you serve the lemonade at home, I recommend beautiful glasses, some ice cubes and some sliced lemon or herbs for decoration.

Does it look delicious?

Ready homemade lemonade with herbals

When you use organic lemons, you can cut the fruit skin fragile and put it into the lemonade too. The infusion is very delicious.

I hope this is a little inspiration. Let me know which flavor you like the most.
