Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 8


  • cup  granulated sugar
  • cups  lemon juice from 8-10 lemons
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups  additional water


  • Make the simple sugar by combining 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a glass measuring cup. Microwave on high until the water starts to boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar and set aside.
  • While the sugar syrup cools down, squeeze all your lemons. You should end up with about 2 cups of fresh lemon juice. Add lemon juice to a large bowl, and add ¼ cup of the simple syrup and 1 cup of additional water. Stir to combine. Taste and continue to add simple syrup, ¼ cup at a time, and additional water until the lemonade is as sweet or tart as you like.
  • Pour the lemonade into a 13x9 glass Pyrex dish, cover and freeze. Every hour give the lemonade a stir to prevent large ice crystals from forming. Freeze overnight.
  • When you’re ready to serve, take a fork and scrape across the top of the frozen lemonade. Scoop a large mound of it into a glass.
