It’s no secret I love LEMON EVERYTHING! Lemon Ice Cream, Lemon Bread, Lemon Pie – oh my! The list goes on and on. But when paired with honey, you have a delightfully sweet combination that can’t be beat.

Oh, sweet summer. I’ve been enjoying a little hiatus spending the first weeks of summer with the girls swimming, playing tennis and of course, boating! My favorite season passes all too quickly so I want to savor every moment of it this year before Ani joins Adalyn in elementary school.

With summer also comes sweets and special treats, like lemonade. I love mixing up a quick batch of refreshing lemonade for the girls after a long day of play.

Little do they know that my lemonade is naturally sweetened with honey, which they all claim not to like.  Honey Lemonade takes just 60 seconds and 2 ingredients!

It’s light and refreshing – a taste of summer. It’s such a simple twist that you’ll want to make again and again! If you love mixing up your summertime refreshments, you’ll have to try these fruit infused water combinations!

Honey Lemonade Ingredients

  • Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed or store bought (100% real lemon juice).
  • Water
  • Honey – Your favorite honey naturally sweetens this refreshing drink.

How to Freshly Squeeze Lemons

  • Citrus Juicer Attachment – Affix to your KitchenAid Mixer. Cut lemon into half. Turn mixer on 2 or 4 and press lemon on attachment with a bowl underneath to capture the juice.
  • Citrus Squeezer – Cut lemon in half, place one half in the citrus squeezer and squeeze over a pitcher or a bowl.
  • By Hand – Roll lemon firmly on counter to soften. Slice lemon in half. Squeeze over bowl multiple times, pressing a spoon to release any remaining juice if needed.

Variations

  • Strawberry Lemonade – For a strawberry lemonade use a muddler to mash up some fresh strawberries at the bottom of the glass or pitcher for a twist on the classic recipe.
  • Blackberry Lemonade – Mash up blackberries in a bowl. Strain the juice and discard skins. Add juice into honey lemonade.

How to Make Honey Lemonade

  1. Juice – Juice your lemons or use real lemon juice.
  2. Add Water – Combine with water to reduce the tartness.
  3. Whisk in Honey – Vigorously whisk to combine or in a large sealed jar, shake.

To Store
