How to Make Fresh Squeezed Country Lemonade

There is simply nothing like Fresh Squeezed Country Lemonade in the Summer time. I pairs well with a hot day by the pool or after weeding the garden in the scorching Summer heat. It’s refreshing in a light and cooling way and if you have never had it fresh squeezed then you’re in for a real treat. You may never go back to Country Time again!

Lemonade can be served in a variety of ways. Warm lemonade served with raw local honey can help ease chest congestion and may also help soothe a sore throat and stuffy nose. This is a good tip to keep in your back pocket for later.

Serving lemonade chilled with fruit infusions in a great way to play with flavors. Place fruits like strawberry, or even cucumber and mint directly in your pitcher before serving or offer then ore sliced to guests on a chilled serving tray.

I like my lemonade sweet and have created this recipe for what I personally beleive to be the optimal blend of sweet and sour. If you want a more tart lemonade I suggest scaling back the sugar or subsituting with honey to suit your taste.
