Making lasting summer memories involves utilizing your five senses. If you think about it the things that you remember from your childhood summers all involve senses. The heat of the sun beating down on your skin and then the cool splash of water from the sprinkler. The sweet juices of watermelon running down your chin, or the burst of color as the sky is lit up with fireworks.
I am happy to partner with Dr Pepper Snapple Group to help you create some lasting summer memories as you feel the cool ice on your fingers, taste the mix of tart lemon and sweet sugar on your tongue, and enjoy the laughter and company of those you love as you sit on the porch and drink your own homemade lemonade!
I have always used RealLemon 100% Lemon Juice when making lemonade because I am all about making memories with as little mess as possible! Why spend an hour trying to squeeze lemons to get enough lemon juice for a pitcher of lemonade, when it has already been done for you?! Life is all about getting maximum flavor with minimum effort! Read on to get my easy homemade lemonade recipe and add a little flavor to your life.
Easy Homemade Lemonade Recipe
2 cups sugar
2 cups RealLemon 100% Lemon Juice
1 cup hot water
1 gallon of ice-cold water
In a large pitcher (large enough to hold a gallon), mix the sugar and hot water until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the RealLemon Lemon Juice and cold water and stir until everything is well incorporated. Put in the refrigerator and chill for a couple hours, or pour immediately over a glass of ice and serve.
