Mamo’s Orange Lemonade

It was a fabulous weekend here!  Out in the garden all day on Saturday and some on Sunday—beautiful weather.  Handsome’s great grandmother, Mamo {pronounced “Maaaaaa-maw”–I never understood why they spelled it the way they did—but families do stuff like that}, passed down a fun recipe that she called Orange Lemonade.  This weekend was the perfect time for it! Handsome shared it with me when we were dating—and we’ve been making it in spring and summer since then.

What you will need:

8 oranges

5 lemons

1 cup of sugar


How ya do it:

Cut oranges and lemons in half and squeeze—be sure to get all the juice!

Pour into a 1 gallon pitcher and add 1 cup of sugar

Fill with water to make 1 gallon {this is the original recipe–we like to add only around 10 cups of water, but taste test it for yourself to make it the way you think best.  We like it more concentrated!}

Garnish with lemon and orange slices and serve over ice

Enjoy!  {It won’t last long!}

Happy Monday~

    • Williams-Sonoma has a great juicer–and I think Pottery Barn does right now, as well. We found ours at Tuesday Morning—it is the same one that Williams-Sonoma sells; but much less expensive! 🙂 There are probably some great juicer deals online, too!

  1. Hi I saw you linked up your recipe from “My Girlish Whims”
    Your Whims Wednesday.. I had to check out your wonderful Orange Lemonade, it looks great and makes me thirsty! I’m definitely going to try this out myself! Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. Mmmmm…that sounds delicious! I need to find a good buy on oranges…I’d love to make lots of this! I like lemonade ok, but I think I’d like this much better, as I imagine it would be sweeter! Can’t wait to try it!

Love to hear from you guys.......
