Chef John reveals the secret to the sweet, sour, and refreshing lemonade that's served at state fairs in this easy recipe.

I did not think this was as good as everyone makes it out to be. The six lemons made about a cup of lemon juice but I dont think that was enough. The drink was very bland and boring. I like lemonade to have more "life", more body. This just tasted like sweetened lemon water, (yes, i know thats what lemonade is)but it was far from good. My four year old daughter loved it, but then again, she loves anything she helps make. Next time i will try another recipe. I hope to have more luck.

I had a sudden craving for lemonade after a friend asked to borrow a lemon for a recipe she was making. I had been cleaning the garage on a hot day. I didn't want to wait hours for my drink and only had two Meyer lemons, which meant I had to cut the recipe by a third. So this is how I made two glasses of lemonade in about 5 minutes. (One for my husband laboring in the veggie garden.) I used an electric juicer and juiced 2 Meyer lemons. I combined the lemon juice with a bit less than two ounces Sun Crystals All Natural Sweetener in a microwave safe measuring cup and nuked it for 30 seconds. This made a nice syrup and dissolved the sweetener. (I only had the Sun Crystals and Organic Pure Cane Sugar on hand, but no white sugar, so gave it a try.) Next, I combined ice cubes and water to make 2 cups cold water in a container. Then poured in the lemon syrup. Shook it up, and wallah! I had two cold glasses of lemonade. It was perfect! Of course, if you want the amount in the recipe, use the quantities suggested
This is the perfect lemonade! It tastes so good! I did used one less lemon because I only had 5 lemons. This lemonade is truly the best lemonade ever!
Great standard lemonade, calling for equal measure of lemon juice and sugar. For those who read only the ingredient list, the recipe actually does call for one cup of juice to the cup of sugar. Although I like mine a touch less sweet, it is probably a five for most lemonade lovers. If you like extra tart, hold back on some of sugar and give it a taste, then add to your liking.
