Check out this lemonade stand! Isn’t it just the cutest? We won it this weekend at the auction to benefit our kids’ schools, and I could not be happier. Love the design, the vintage lemon pictures and the basket of goodies that came with. Very creative and the kids will have a great time this summer!
The basket of goodies included cups, napkins, straws, lemon dishtowel, three containers of lemonade mix, a plastic lemon pitcher and matching cups, and a money jar and chalkboard. A recipe for lemonade was also included, which I will share here – after our abundant winter crop of lemons, I have loads of frozen juice ready to go this summer. And this looks like a great recipe for the kids to tackle themselves, with help at the stove.
Perfect “Old Fashioned” Lemonade

- 1 cup superfine or baking sugar
- 1 cup lemon juice (about 4-6 lemons)
- 3 to 4 cups cold water
Combine sugar and 1 cup water in saucepan over low heat, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.
In a large pitcher, mix sugar syrup and lemon juice. Add cold water to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with lemon slices and mint sprigs, if desired.
* Imagine my surprise when I went to search out other lemonade recipes and found that Elise’s recipe for Perfect Lemonade was the one provided with our Lemonade Stand! She has a series of “Perfect” recipes that I love including Perfect Popcorn, Perfect Pie Crust, and Perfect Hard-boiled Eggs.
