Homemade lemonade is one of my favorite things to make in the summertime.  Especially since I live in California where I am spoiled by lemon trees growing in our front yard.



  • 1 ¬Ĺ cups (350 ml)of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cups (700 ml) of water
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) agave nectar
  • 1 sprig fresh mint.


  1. Squeeze lemons into a sieve placed over a bowl and sieve. The sieve will catch the pits.
  2. Mix in agave nectar, and water. Stir to combine. Transfer into a decanter or decorative bottle. Garnish with fresh mint.
