Homemade Lemonade

Homemade Lemonade

This homemade lemonade is a perfect, refreshing drink for hot summer days, and the natural sweetness of Zulka® sugar enhances the fresh lemon flavor beautifully. Enjoy!



  • 1 cup of Zulka® Morena Pure Cane Sugar
  • 1 cup of water (for the simple syrup)
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)
  • 4 to 5 cups of cold water (to dilute)


  1. First, you'll need to make a 'simple syrup'. Add the Zulka® sugar and 1 cup of water to a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  2. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and let the simple syrup cool.
  3. While your simple syrup is cooling, squeeze the lemons until you have 1 cup of fresh lemon juice.
  4. Pour the lemon juice into a large pitcher. Add the cooled simple syrup and stir well.
  5. Dilute the mixture by adding 4 to 5 cups of cold water. The exact amount will depend on how tart or sweet you like your lemonade. Stir well.
  6. Taste your lemonade, and if needed, add more water or sugar to taste.
  7. Pop the pitcher in the fridge to chill, or serve immediately over ice. Enjoy!
