Made with fresh lemon juice and raw honey, this honey lemonade is great served warm or cold.


Units Scale

For the lemonade:

  • 1 cup lemon juice (3-5 lemons, depending on size)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 cups water, separated

For the ice cubes:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup hot water


For the lemonade:

Warm one cup of water and mix with honey until dissolved. (This helps to avoid the honey settling in the bottom of the pitcher.)  Blend with remaining water and lemon juice in a large pitcher. Serve hot or cold.

For the ice cubes:

Blend the honey with the hot water and lemon juice. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze at once. (If you let it sit, the honey may settle out.)  Serve with lemonade, fruit punch or iced tea (my personal favorite). This recipe will fit into one standard ice cube tray with room to spare.


Hot lemonade with honey is great for congestion and sore throats.
