Here's another recipe which just makes a pitcher: (from:Dinner On The Ground) Pitcher O'Lemonade 6-8 large lemons 2 quarts water 1-1/2 cups sugar Squeeze lemons and remove seeds. Leave as much pulp as possible. Pour water over lemon juice. Add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Makes 6 tall glasses. Note: You might want to use this method for the first recipe if you like the idea of leaving in the pulp.


  • To make approximately 2-1/2 gallons
  • 2-1/2 gallons ice water
  • 1 quart lemon juice or juice from approximately 2-1/2 dozen lemons
  • 4 to 6 cups sugar


Dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice, then add to ice water. Stir until blended.
