Old-Fashioned Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 5 cups water, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1 ¾ cups lemon juice (about 10 large lemons) (we bought more than 10 lemons since we didn’t know what counted as “large” for lemons)

Directions

  1. Take a large saucepan out and mix the sugar, 1 cup of water and the lemon peel together in it. Set the heat to medium and stir the mixture for 4 minutes or until the sugar’s dissolved. Take the saucepan off the heat, stirring in the lemon juice and remaining water afterwards. Place the lemonade in the fridge and leave it there until it’s cold. Serve the drink over ice and enjoy !

This is a delicious classic lemonade. It’s sweet but you can still taste the lemon in this without it being pucker-inducing. A great drink to enjoy on a hot day.

Lemonade Icebox Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • ¾ cup thawed lemonade concentrate
  • 1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Yellow food coloring, optional (we didn’t use it)
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 in.)

Directions

  1. Take a large mixing bowl out and add the cream cheese and condensed milk to it, beating them together until the mixture is smooth. Now take the lemonade concentrate and beat that in. Next thing to do is fold* in the whipped topping and food coloring (if you’re using the coloring that is) and pour it into the crust. Cover the pie and stick it in the fridge until it’s set and you’re ready to eat.

*We were afraid of the whipped topping breaking by the time we were done folding it in so we just beat it in for a few seconds, just long enough for it to be mixed in.

This really did come out tasting like lemonade !
