One Glass of Fresh Meyer Lemonade

Larry-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 tinโ€™s worth each night until they were all gone. And then the weather turned hot, and lemonade was obvious.

Frozen juiceAnd because there is SOOOO much juice in my freezer, these two other recipe posts will be prepared again here at home:


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.ย  Makes one serving.

I tried and enjoyed your recipe for lemonade last year, thank you. It was great when I had purchased a bag of lemons and had just a few left from another recipe. I’ve shared it on Pinterest on my Treasures By Brenda Pinterest Boards, “Recipes for One or Two People” and “Pinterest Recipes I’ve Tried.”

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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