I've made this a few times now and it's just the right balance; not too sweet, not too sour. I add 2 cups of vodka to the mixture and it tastes just right to me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like it more lemony so I used more lemons -- eight to be exact -- because I make *VERY* stiff drinks. Here's the upgrade: Toss a few slices of fresh ginger when making the simple syrup and make ginger lemonade with vodka! That provides a small elegant twist on a summer refresher. (Be sure to remove the ginger slices from the simple syrup before adding to the lemonade.) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love lemonade and, instead of mixing this with vodka, I poured half lemonade and half Cooks Brut Champagne over ice. Really delicious. Sort of a lemonade Mimosa. I have to make triple batches to keep up with the demand. item not reviewed by moderator and published
