Simple Lemonade Recipe:
6 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
Juice your lemons, and you should get about 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. You can use bottled if you must, but the flavor won't be as crisp. In a large pitcher, mix lemon juice, water and sugar. Stir lemonade well and serve over ice, with a lemon slice or two to garnish.
OLD-FASHIONED-STYLE SUGAR-FREE LEMONADE
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup Splenda granular
4 to 6 cups cold water to taste
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)
In a large glass measuring cup, combine 2/3 cup water and the Splenda. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. Using caution, remove from microwave and stir the mixture to see if Splenda is completely dissolved. If not, return to microwave and heat an additional 45-60 seconds. Fill a pretty, large pitcher with ice. Pour lemon juice over the ice. Add the Splenda mixture and stir well. Add 4 cups (1-qt) of cold water. Stir well to blend. Taste and add additional water to suit your taste.
