The best lemonade I have ever had is Crystal Lights sugar free mix. It is quick and esy to make and you can never tell that it's sugar free.

I disagree.  I'm not saying that Crystal Light's lemonade isn't good, just that you can taste the subtle difference between it and other lemonade mixes with sugar. 


I normally don't have lemons on hand, so I usually keep a bottle of lemon juice in the fridge.  I'll also add 1/4 of a cup of lemon juice to lemonade drink mixes to give the lemonade more of a sour taste.

I used to travel the fairs (yes, a carnie) selling fresh squeezed lemonade. Our recipe was close to yours, just measurements a little different. But so many people would think they were being smart by saying "I don't want any ice" or "Just a little ice" -they thought they'd get more. What they didn't realize is that when you shake it, it is the ice that causes the sugar to dissolve and mix with the water and lemon juice.

I just cut a few lemons in half and squeeze it into the water and then slice the lemons and put in water and add sugar to taste.  That is the on fashion way to make lemon aid.  Have a wonderful weekend and may God bless each of you and keep you safe.

Could you list the measurements you used?  I love the lemonade from the local fairs and vendors in the city park.
