When life gives you lemons....make lemonade!

Updated: May 23, 2021

So, we are in the dog days of summer, a summer like no other, with many kids still under a quarantine at home and all creative ideas exhausted!  Why not make some delicious fresh lemonade from scratch!  It is so easy to do with lemons from Florida - the juiciest in the world!  

Here is my own recipe for lemonade that is a bit strong, but I pour it over a glass of ice and it is perfect!

Martha’s Fresh Florida Lemonade

  • 1 cup organic sugar crystals

  • Juice of 6 Florida lemons (1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice)

  • 1 whole Florida lemon, sliced

  • 4 cups water with ice


  • Juice lemons and measure. Pour 1 cup juice into pitcher, add 1 cup sugar and stir with wooden spoon to dissolve.

  • Fill 2 cup measuring cup with ice, then top off with water to make 2 cups. Pour into juice mixture.

  • Add second 2 cups of water and stir well. Add sliced lemons. Serve over ice or straight up. Add one slice of fruit to each glass as garnish.
