Lemon Syrup and Lemonade

Lemon always refreshes with its Yellow Colour. I love to have lemon syrup bottle refrigerated for summer season. This season was also no exceptional. What special is, this time i prepared my own lemon syrup and stored it up. I also love lemon Soda. Its the best for Pitham(pitta dosha). I will sure make a post on how i make lemon soda soon.


First prepare lemon syrup and then you can add water to it to turn it into lemonade. lemon syrup is ideal, if desired to store for long time.

(measurement for 5-6 glasses of lemonade)

4 Lemons
1 cup Sugar
1 cup water
4 and 1/2 cups of water
1 tsp of lemon zest (optional)


Preparing sugar syrup is the first stage. boil a cup of water, add sugar to it, dissolve it. let it boil for 4 minutes till it comes rolling boil and it attains single string consistency. let it cool.

Cut the Lemons and squeeze the Juice out.

Mix the Lemon Juice with the cooled sugar syrup.  add lemon zest to the syrup and give a good mix. this is how Lemon syrup is prepared.


Iced Lemonade

* Add 2 tsp of Lemon Syrup to a glass of chilled water to get Lemon Juice/ Lemonade.

* Mix 2 tsp of Lemon Syrup with a glass of Soda and few ice cubes to get Lemon Soda.


 or to store as lemon juice, on preparing lemon syrup, add four and half cup's of water to the lemon syrup and mix well and store in a pitcher or Jar. This can be stored in fridge. serve the lemonade chill.


1. The ratio for Lemonade is Sugar : Water : Lemon Juice is 1:1:1

2. Lemons should be at room temperature or warmer before the juice is extracted.

3. To warm the lemon either put them in the microwave for 40 seconds at high heat or put the lemons in hot water for 2 minutes.

4. For extra flavor, add some lemon zest to the lemon syrup.
