I found this really bitter and the kids were really disappointed and we ended up throwing it away. A waste of lemons, sugar, and an hour! bleurgh!

It was wonderful drinking that lemonade which I made by my own hands. My parents really appreciated how I made this by my own.

All I can say is absolutely amazing! I wanted to attempt something new for my parents and sister to try, and this was a winner. I used slightly less than the amount of sugar stated and sparkling water...There was hardly any left for me! A great alternative to fizzy cool drinks. Thumbs up :)

I too recall this recipe from the Kenwood Chef book but I'm sure that the recipe called for a whole egg - shell and all - anyone else know of that recipe?

Very very easy to make and is an instant hit every time it is served. It also stores well in the fridge for a week. I whizzed all ingredients and sieved it but did not add the remaining half ltr of water. Took the bottle to a picnic, added the rest of the water and a nice refreshing drink was ready!
