Almost Fresh Lemonade: Refreshing and Delicious Recipe

Lemonade is a summer treat for everyone, right? We absolutely love lemonade, especially when it’s super hot out! This recipe is fantastic, it taste just like fresh without the lemon squeezing work!
Strawberry Lemonades- is one of my absolute favorites! Nothing like a delicious strawberry lemonade to mix things up a bit! Try it out today, it’s super easy!
The Skinny…
Lemonade: Tastes Like Fresh Squeezed!Okay, homemade lemonade beats any other, hands down! SO, I decided to make some. I don’t have a juicer and wasn’t interested in the work involved to make it totally fresh, so I got creative and made some without the fresh lemons.
Just bought a large bottle of lemon juice and got started with some experimenting. This recipe will make one gallon.
A Lemonade Tip
We also took some of the lemonade and poured into ice molds with some chopped fresh strawberries. This way, as the ice melts you slowly get the flavor and goodness of the fresh strawberries!!!
This one is a keeper! We really enjoyed it!!!
Random Weirdness
Also, it must be said.  The spelling of lemonade is super weird to me.  Not sure why, but it really is.  Ever see a word that you know is correct but just can’t shake the ‘it’s weird’ feeling?  If not, don’t judge. You may be the weird one…  Just saying…

Almost FreshAlmost Fresh Lemonade: Refreshing and Delicious @Crafty_Zoo Recipe Lemonade


2 cups Sugar
1 Cup lemon juice
Water (enough to make the gallon full)
Strawberries (as many or as few as you’d like)
***You can use less sugar, I like it all sweet here at the Zoo!!!


(not that you’ll really need them)

1.  Pour sugar in pitcher
2. Add lemon juice, stir.
3. Add water to the 1 gallon line, stir again!
4. You can either slice up the strawberries and add them to the pitcher, or wait and add them to individual glasses.  The berries sitting in the lemonade allows the flavor to really infuse!
BBQ Goodness:
This goes swimmingly well at BBQs and picnics! Try it out with some of our amazing sides! We have 5 different salads that are out of this world: Traditional Potato Salad, German Potato Salad, Broccoli Surprise, Southern Macaroni Salad or our Country Pasta Toss! Of course, we also have lots of other great recipes if those don’t strike your fancy!

Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
