Time for Lemonade!!! I am so excited to make some fresh lemonade. I have never had it. Should be good. I have followed other Paula recipes and they turned out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you have a finite 1 gallon container and add, 1 gallon of water, plus 2 cups of sugar, plus 1 cup of water, plus 2 cups of lemon juice... see the problem? I'm not sure how they measure things in the south, but in the rest of the country we call that "over flow". Plus, can you imagine a lemon simple syrup poured into a gallon of water, WEAK! More like lemon water. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Best. Lemonade. Ever. Just note that the ingredients call for a gallon of water, but the recipe says to combine two cups of lemon juice with water to RENDER 1 gallon of water, which turned out tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
you obviously don't read instructions well.... You mix all of that into the jug and add the water to make a gallon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
But is says 1 gallon cold water in the ingredients list. item not reviewed by moderator and published
He (or she?) reads rather well, actually. In a 1 gallon container, if you add 1 gallon of COLD water + 1 cup of hot water + 2 cups of lemon juice = OVERFLOW. The recipe is delicious, the measurements are a little whacky though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
