Easy Homemade Lemonade

6 Cups
8 Minutes

Lemonade is always a classic, refreshing drink. Doesn’t it make you feel nostalgic back in the day when you would sell homemade lemonade down the street from your community as a kid? I know many of us have headed down that path already and buying lemonade at the store is not as appealing to me anymore because of how much sugar content it has. Luckily, this lemonade recipe I’m sharing with you trumps all lemonades (in my opinion)! Instead of mixing the lemonade with white sugar, I substitute it for agave and my oh my…it’s SO. DARN. GOOD. It will take you less than 5 minutes and as long as you make the simple syrup before hand, making lemonade on the fly is a piece of cake when you’re looking for a refreshing drink!
