Citrus lemonade is so much more than just lemonade, and it is perfect for these hot summer days. We love drinking this citrus lemonade, because it is a little different than your regular lemonade. Friends and family will think that it is a real treat. 

​This recipe is made with lemons, limes, and oranges. It is the perfect blend of tangy and sweet, and sure to be a hit. It is easy enough to make for an afternoon treat, but tasty enough to serve for a special occasion! 

We had some left over oranges from a camping trip, that we couldn’t eat up fast enough so we decided to make citrus lemonade. It works up quickly and I think that even young kids would love to help make it. This is one of the best ways that I have found to use up citrus.

Tips and Tricks for Citrus Lemonade:

  • Use Warm Water to stir the sugar into; it will help the sugar dissolve faster.
  • My suggestion is to add 3 cups of warm water to your pitcher and then add the 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
  • Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Then add the other 7 cups of water (cold water).
  • Then go ahead and finish the recipe.
  • That way your sugar will dissolve faster and you still won’t have to refrigerate the Citrus Lemonade for a lengthy time before serving it.
  • For a different touch, garnish with mint leaves.
