Frozen Lemonade

6 cups

Slushy frozen lemonade is a delicious hot-weather refresher for all ages.


  • 3 ½ cups water

  • 1 ½ cups sugar

  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 10 lemons), plus wedges for serving


  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Let cool.

  2. Mix sugar syrup and lemon juice in a nonreactive 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Cover, and freeze overnight. (Lemonade can be frozen for up to 3 days.)

  3. Using a fork, break frozen lemonade mixture into chunks, and transfer to a large bowl. Whisk, breaking up chunks, until slushy. Divide slush among glasses. Squeeze 1 lemon wedge over each glass, drop it into glass, and serve immediately.
