You can easily make your own lemonade at home. Here are the steps to make a delicious lemonade.

The best of the best lemonade recipe


  • Orange peels
  • Lemon juice
  • Citric Acid
  • Sugar
  • water

Step 1. The orange peels

Orange peels is used to color the lemonade. Therefore we only need peels not orange friut itself.

  • Grate the orange peel. Or peel off using peeler.
  • Only 1 orange (25 g peel ) is enough to color

Step 2. Lemon Juice

  • Put lemon juice ice cube and orange peels in a deep cup. You can use fresh lemon juice if you like. I prefer to save lemon juice in a deep freze for quick use later in the summer. You will find instructions on how to make lemon juice cubes at the end of this recipe.

Step 3. Citric Acid

1 teaspoon of citric acid will be enough to make the lemonade sour.

  • Let it dissolve by mixing in half a glass of warm water and pour it into the mixing bowl.

Step 4. Sugar

Put 1.5 or 2 cups of granulated sugar in the mixing bowl.

Step 5. Water and preperation

  • Add 2-3 glasses of water to the mixture. and blend with a stabmixer.
  • About 1 minute of mixing will suffice. It is important to use a deep mixing bowl for the use of a stabmixer so that the mixture does not splash around.
  • Add water after mixing is complete. With the help of clean cheesecloth, light shawl, or scarf, strain into another container and transfer the lemonade.
  • Put your strained lemonade in a pitcher or bottle and chill in the refrigerator. Serve cold.

How should lemonade ingredients be stored?

You can store lemonade ingredients in your deep freezer for a long time. I recommend keeping only the lemon juice and orange peel so that the ingredients do not take up much space.

  • Peel or grate the orange peels. Put them in a freezer bag and place them in the deep freezer.
  • To store lemon juice, squeeze your lemons and place them in an ice tray to freeze them in the freezer.
  • Take the frozen lemon ice cubes out of the ice container and place them in the freezer bag again.

Thank you.
