Once the summer heat starts to set in, there's nothing I find more refreshing than a cool glass of lemonade. Something about that perfect mix of sour and sweet never gets old! This recipe from Epicurious is a classic take on the summertime favorite and is incredibly simple to make. I was thrilled to have an opportunity to use this beautiful glass drink dispenser from Pottery Barn, so I tripled the recipe to fill the dispenser (holds 10 quarts). This size is perfect for accommodating a larger gathering. What's your favorite lemonade recipe?

  1. Looks like so much fun! As much as I love lemonade, I personally like raspberry lemonade better than the traditional. Even better if it's homemade!

  6. Adorable table set up, and lovely to see proper sized slices of lemons being used (not those wafer thin slices you see in pubs/restaurants)

  9. I love drink dispensers during the summer months. I use it for my home made iced tea, my home made fruit water and for a home made lemonade! I will try out your recipe soon :)

  14. It's currently raining here. But as soon as the sun comes up I will be thinking about lemons. I'm a fan of lemonade, as well as using lemon juice on my salad. So refreshing.
