Larry Lemonade One Glass of Fresh Meyer LemonadeToo many lemons. I was telling friend, Sandy, about a giant box of Meyer lemons that showed up on my doorstep, catching me off guard. They were a prize for my Glazed Lemon Poundcake post; a recipe that totally ROCKS.

Sandy grew up in Orange County (where orange and lemon groves took up the majority of land at one time). Her childhood home had a high-volume lemon tree, and her mom would squeeze-and-freeze juice in 1/4 cup portions. How brilliant is that?

Note that when you use a muffin tin, you get six (or 12 depending on your tin) 1/4 cup cubes. I processed one muffin tin’s worth each night until they were all gone. And then the weather turned hot, and lemonade was obvious.

A Glass of Homemade Lemonade for Larry

  • 1 cup water
  • Approximately 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (1 frozen pre-squeezed juice cube)

In a glass, mix the water and sugar together until dissolved. Then add frozen juice cube and stir until melted. Add more sugar, if desired, to-taste. No need for ice.  Makes one serving.

Mmm, tasty. I have some lemon juice frozen in little silicone two-bite brownie molds thinking that I would have to wait for large parties to mix up a whole batch of lemonade. Two cubes (approx the 1/4 cup) and 1 heaping tablespoon of sugar makes one happy gal. Thanks!

Thanks for the recipe. I used to live in California and fell in love with Meyer lemons. After years away, I just found some Meyer lemons at Costco for the first time and I NEEDED to have some lemonade. :)

Discovered this post just in time for the July 4th holiday. My lemon tree is loaded with fruit, thanks for this.
