With summer around the corner, it’s a good time to have a tried and true lemonade recipe on hand. My son was home sick from school yesterday and requested Grammy’s famous lemonade. When I was little and not feeling well, my mom would make a bed on the sofa and make this lemonade.
Truth be told, this recipe is nothing out of the ordinary but it’s a tradition we are happy to carry forward. And it’s so yummy!
Grammy’s Famous Lemonade
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 3 whole lemons
- 4 cups cold water
- 12 cubes ice
Mix sugar and hot water in a pitcher
Add juice of 3 lemons
Add 4 cups of cold water and 12 ice cubes
Stir vigorously with wooden spoon
Serve over ice
Bring on summer! And bring on the ice-cold lemonade. Thank you, Grammy!
I thought I had already posted this recipe so I was searching my own blog and stumbled upon this post. This was the children’s fist lemonade stand and I can’t get over how little they were. This sad face was after their first taste of rejection. Luckily business picked right up and they had a great day. Grammy and Papa even drove over to buy a glass. Sweet memories.
Dear sweet Grady should never be sick. He is way too kind for that.

Our mom made fresh lemonade in the summer and she added one orange – made it naturally sweet, but of course she added additional sugar as well!
I love lemonade and this looks like the perfect recipe! I will definitely be saving so I can pull it up next time I make some. Thanks for sharing, hope you are having a lovely day.
