    I followed the suggestions from other posters (using two more lemons, 2 cups of vodka) and it is YUM!! Sipping on it right now!
    Make this frequently with a lemon or 2 more that what is called for and it is excellent!
    Love this ,! Made this at the lake and was a hit with friends
    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.
    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.)
    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.
    I must have extremely sweet lemons on my tree. I had to use about a dozen medium sized lemons to cut the sweetness, but then it was scrumpdillyicious!
    Had a party everyone enjoyed it..everyone was happy..
    I made this for a Summer kickoff party with my girlfriends. It was a huge hit. They liked it so much, they are already planning next year's party!
     Simple to make and you control the amount of vodka!
    I forgot what good lemonade was, thanks for sharing!
    This was one of the best drinks that I've ever had! It was so light and refreshing --- even with the vodka! Loved it!
    The drink is freshing and easy to make. Sometimes I like to add some cold Sprite or Sierra Mist with it for some carbonation.
    find someone who has been handed some Vodka and make Tyler's Lemonade. It was a hit at my last porch party!
    Made this for a football party. Many thought it was tangy and refreshing!
    This was a hit at my Bunco party.
    Simple and delicious drink. Better with a bit of zest from the lemon.
    If you want a great tasting adult beverage then you found it! Perfect for that hot summer afternoon!
