My husband was craving lemonade all day. I didn't have any lemons, so I just used the bottled juice and he really liked it. It was a little sweet for me, so I just added water. Thanks for an easy recipe!

I was really craving lemonade one night, so I found this recipe, and went to lemon squeezing. I don't really think it was worth the effort. I had to use more lemons than the recipe called for because it wasn't tart enough- but then I only drank half a glass and threw the rest away because the flavor wasn't quite right. It was the right amount of tartness, and the right amount of sweet- but there was something missing. At this point, store bought is better. Thanks anyway.

At first we thought it was too much sugar. But then we tried it and then it was fantastic. It was the perfect combination of water, sugar, and Lemons.
