Home made Lemonade

Well, summer is always around the corner, at least in Greece. One of the best things you can do with those beautiful lemons we get, is refreshing and healthy lemonade, a soft drink for all times, avoiding the over-sugared canned ones.
Our favorite taste in a quick & easy recipe.


1,5lt lemon juice
1/2 kg sugar


  1. Place the ingredients in a pan, stir & heat them. Bring to the boil until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir from time to time, to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Remove from the heat and leave to cool
  3. That’s it. Easy! You just made concentrated lemonade
  4. You can store it in bottles, in the fridge.

To enjoy it, dilute 1 part of concentrated lemonade in 4 parts of water (adjust according to your taste). You can add some ice-cubes and some sprigs or leaves of fresh spearmint for ultimate refreshment! You can also make a jug of it to share with your guests.


  • You can store the concentrated lemonade in an ice-cube tray in your freezer, to have ready-made portions at your fingertips any time. Whenever you feel like it, just take out a couple of those lemony ice-cubes, dilute put them in a glass of water, and there you have it. Instant, home-made lemonade!
  • You can dilute the lemony ice-cubes in sparkling mineral water, instead of water, to make your own fizzy soft drink any time!!! Really amazing!!!
  • You can also add it in cocktails for a cool aperitif, or evening drink.
