What are Myer Lemons?
MYER LEMONS: A type of lemon that does not have the exceptionally tart flavor of standard lemons. Meyer lemons are typically considered to be sweeter in both flavor and aroma, providing a taste mildly similar to a tangerine. I’m not a fan of sour lemonade. The Myer lemon helps with the tartness.

LEMONS: To get the best outcome, I highly recommend using freshly squeezed lemons for this recipe. 3-4 good size juicy lemons
SUGAR: Plain everyday granulated sugar work great.
WATER: I use tap water because I have a water softener connected to my water supply. If yours has a chlorinated taste, use bottled or filtered water.
How to Make Summertime Myer Lemon Lemonade Recipe
Add fresh squeezed lemon juice to a 2 quart pitcher. Add 1 cup water to a small pot and 1 cup sugar. Cook over medium heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Set syrup aside to cool (about 10 minutes). Pour cooled simple syrup into the pitcher with the lemon juice. Add remaining water. Stir to combine.
What is a Simple Syrup?
SIMPLE SYRUP is a liquid sweetener made by dissolving equal parts sugar and water. Simple syrup disperses sweetness evenly throughout beverages of any temperature, making it a key component of many iced drinks.
Can I Use Regular Lemons?
Absolutely! This delicious homemade lemonade recipe is great with any kind of lemon. If you like your lemonade just a little tart with the right amount of sweetness, then this is the recipe for you.
CAN I USE HONEY TO MAKE LEMONADE? You could, but keep in mind the honey will give the lemonade a different flavor. Start with ½ cup of honey and taste test before adding any more.
WHAT CAN I ADD TO CHANGE UP THE FLAVOR? Fresh rosemary and lavender are delicious pairing with homemade lemonade. Also give my SPARKLING CRANBERRY LEMONADE and SUMMERTIME HOMEMADE PINK LEMONADE a try.
