Throughout winter, as we await these hot summer days, we all believe that if only the sun was shining and setting late in the evening, we would be squeezing the days dry. When this summer actually comes, we are all melting down, dreaming of any refreshment to keep us going.

How many times have you reached for some soda drink to quench your thirst? If the answer is more than once, we guess you have never tried lemonade on a hot summer day.

Lemonade is a drink as old as time because it was a favourite summer drink of many people for over a thousand years now! Who would have thought that lemon juice and water could become such a sensation? After all these years, we still eagerly take a sip on every occasion and get transported back to our childhood days with its bitter-sweet taste. What is its secret?

There are at least two reasons for this drink’s popularity. Everyone knows how to make lemonade in its basic version, as it is only water, lemon juice and sugar. These three accessible ingredients allowed our mothers and grandmas to make lemonade for us when we were kids, so now, it simply is the taste of childhood.

A recipe for lemonade is still passed from generation to generation in numerous households for yet another reason. This cold beverage is as refreshing and thirst-quenching as no other drink. It was actually scientifically proven! Beverages with a bitter taste stimulate our salivary glands and reduce the feeling of dryness in your mouth that is often caused by exhaustion and dehydration. 

In other words, as you take a sip of lemonade, its bitter taste wakes your salivary glands up, and they get down to work of hydrating your mouth, so the feeling of refreshment lasts long after the glass gets empty. So, take that lemonade recipe and make the best drink for this summer!

A basic recipe for lemonade is simple but it does not mean that you cannot spice it up a bit. In fact, there are dozens of various recipes for this popular beverage, and we’ve chosen the best ones for you to try out this summer!

Watermelon lemonade

If you want to make a beverage that is sweet, refreshing and as summer-inspired as possible, choose a watermelon lemonade recipe. You will only need:

  • a half of a watermelon
  • three lemons
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of water

Remove all the seeds from your watermelon, cut it into small pieces, add lemon juice and sugar and blend everything together. Add water to your smoothie and enjoy a refreshing drink. You can add some ice!

Parsley lemonade

It might not sound like the perfect summer drink, but trust us on this one. To make some parsley lemonade you will need:

  • a bunch of parsley
  • two lemons
  • four tablespoons of honey
  • 1.5 qt of water
  • a cup of ice

Chop the parsley leaves and cut lemons, add honey and ice, and blend all ingredients together.  While blending, slowly pour water into your mixture. You can serve the drink right away or cool it down a bit more.

Restaurant lemonade

If you’ve ever wondered how to make lemonade like the one you can order at a restaurant, here lies the mystery. Try to make this drink with some sugar syrup! You only need to boil sugar and water (the same amount of both ingredients) to create this sweet, thick syrup. To make the perfect lemonade you will need:

  • 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup of sugar syrup (or less)
  • 2 cups of water

Squeeze the juice out of the lemons, and add water and sugar syrup. Add a few mint leaves, ice and a lime, if you want to achieve a slightly more refreshing effect.
