We are going to offer lemonade and strawberry lemonade at the apple festival this year. I was wondering if any of yall had recipes for making lemonade in large quantities.

Try this first but I think it is 2 cups lemon concentrate, 2 cups sugar per gallon of water. I make a simple syrup with with the sugar and it was great but I only did it once and it was a few months ago.

Being Diabetic I wonder if you could do that with Splenda or some other fake sugar. I miss real lemonade!

Are you gonna squash lemons on-site in front of the customer? That usually translates into more expensive lemonade. Sweet n Sour mix goes in the main water supply, I used Evon's. Use a Coleman water cooler to store this mixture. Into a 32 oz cup - Squash half a lemon, third cup of sugar, scoop of ice and top off with your sweet n sour water. The lemon rind has to go in the cup - it makes a big difference. Then you shake it up like a martini, serve, collect $5. Worst part is finding the big 32 oz souvenir cups. Offer refills for $3 and you got customers all day.

Country Time lemonade powder, just add water. It is actually very good and we get compliments on our lemonade all the time. We add some sliced lemons for eye candy.

The 2 cups real lemon juice, 2 cups sugar to gal is about perfect. We add a pinch of baking soda to it like we do when making iced tea.

What does the baking soda do?

What does the baking soda do?keeps tea and lemonade from souring in the case of tea and keeps lemonade from breaking down and the need to shake it.
