Despite me checking it assiduously, it's still rather bitter for my taste after 20 minutes — and the lemon doesn't seem to have released any of its juices. Perhaps mashing the diced fruit through the sieve might have yielded better results, but I don't dare second-guess Constance. Jane's Fruit Book recipe involves infusing water with the peel of three lemons and simmering it gently — "the peel gradually flavours the water quite strongly". Once cool, I stir in the lemon juice and sugar to taste and chill, then dilute with soda water and serve with a sprig of mint and a slice of cucumber.
Although I find a still lemonade more refreshing, the balance of sour and bitter flavours is much better than in the Constance Spry recipe, although perhaps a little muted for my taste.

The mint and cucumber provides a distinctive and very British taste of summer which makes this particular lemonade stand out from the rest. Delia's method also involves infusing hot water with the zest of three lemons and then stirring in the juice of six fruits, along with g sugar. She then leaves it overnight, which, given how rapidly Constance Spry's lemonade turned bitter, makes me anxious, but actually the flavour is very well balanced and my favourite of all the recipes I test. Gary's recipe, in The Complete Rhodes Around Britain , is billed as going well with griddled scones and homemade biscuits, which is endearing — it sounds just the kind of thing to set off a sunny afternoon in a striped deckchair.
The method, however, is unusual: I chop up two lemons, pith, pips and all, and stick them in a blender with 4tbsp caster sugar and a pint of water, whizz it all together, sieve it and it's ready to serve over ice.
I really want to like this one so easy! You never appreciate a glass of chilled lemonade more than in a hot climate, and India can't get enough of the stuff. In my experience, lemonade on the subcontinent tends to mean a glass half-full of freshly squeezed citrus juice what were described as lemons always tasted more like limes to me served with a bottle of soda water and a bowl of sugar to be added as desired — along with a good pinch of salt.
Turkish Lemonade or Limonata Recipe
Blogger Mamta Gupta's simple recipe for nimbu pani involves stirring the juice of a lemon or lime I use lemon, for consistency rather than for authenticity's sake into a jug of water, then adding sugar to taste and serving with ice and a slice of lemon. A pinch of chat masala spice — which doesn't seem quite in keeping with the drink I'm trying to achieve — or salt is an optional extra: Mamta observes that "salt and sugar together help to replace the lost electrolytes in the intense heat of India", and indeed this subtly flavoured drink is hands-down the most refreshing of all the recipes I try.
I quite like the salt, but that could just be nostalgia — it doesn't go down quite so well with some of my testers, so I'm going to leave it to your discretion. The simplicity and speed of Gary Rhodes's method appeals to me here — lemonade is something you should be able to enjoy on the spur of the moment rather than having to prepare it the night before as Delia's recipe demands.
She loved it and I did, too! Next time Ill reduce the water a tad to make up for the additional liquid, but other than that they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Hi Kate. Yes, I made this limonana. I also love this drink and was introduced to it on one of my many trips to Israel. I used 1 cup lightly packed mint and it tasted like I remember it. I found my new summer drink — thank you, Kate! I preferred this with bourbon, but my husband liked gin. Can this be frozen?
Thinking of taking it to a picnic in a thermal jug — what do you think? This was a delightful and refreshing drink to enjoy during a summer evening. It was so delicious that I did not miss having dessert, as this alone was enough. Cookie and Kate receives commissions on purchases made through our links to retailers.

Love this with and without the bourbon! Thanks for another refreshing recipe! Love this recipe! Tip: Taste a spoonful of the lemonade to see if it's as sweet as you like. If the lemonade is too sour, add 2 tablespoons 24 g of sugar. If the lemonade is too sweet, add the juice of half a lemon. Serve the chilled raspberry pink lemonade over ice.
Tip: If you're using a high-powered blender, consider using the pulse setting so you don't accidentally over blend the lemonade. To make lemonade, start by cutting some lemons in half. Squeeze the juice into a glass or pitcher. Then, add about 3 times as much cold water to the pitcher as there is lemon juice. Finally, add a little bit of sugar and stir the lemonade thoroughly. If the lemonade tastes too bitter, add more sugar. If it tastes too sweet, add more lemon juice. You can also make sparkling lemonade by substituting the water with carbonated water.
