Honey Sweetened Lemonade
I just can't justify the amount of sugar most lemonade recipes call for. And that's how this Honey Sweetened Lemonade recipe was born!
- 1 cup hot tap water
- ⅓ cup honey
- ½ cup lemon juice or lime juice Bottled or fresh squeezed, whatever works best for you
- ⅛ teaspoon good salt
- In a 2qt/half gallon jar add all of the ingredients.
- Shake well to dissolve honey, then top up with cold water. Enjoy immediately or store in fridge for later.
- Jazz it up by serving with frozen fruit as ice cubes, mint leaves, lemon or lime slices, or just in a good ol' jar full of ice.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
I have been making this regularly once or twice a week, usually using lime juice. It is so delicious! I feel good letting my kids drink it because I know what’s in it.
Lime juice would be so delicious!
Love this recipe!!!!
This lemonade is so refreshing when it's hot outside!
Living in Texas where the temps dangle in the triple digits for MONTHS, this is such a healthy and refreshing alternative to sports drinks. It hydrates and replenishes minerals and is super tasty! My dancers love it after a hard workout!
Made with Meyer lemons and used enough hot water for a warm drink - delicious and cheerful on a cold day!
We love lemonade here. Since I have a citrus juicer now. We make lemonade often during the summer months. Such a refreshing drink! I add a bit more honey to ours.
This was a go-to for us in the summer and so easy for my kids to make too! We would sometimes even mix it with Iced tea to make it Iced tea lemonade 🙂 Yum!
Hi Kate! Is this the same as your recipe for an electrolyte drink?
Hi Julia, the recipe I use for electrolyte replacement (aka Labouraide) has equal amounts of honey and lemon juice. I use less water to make it as a concentrate.

This is a summer staple at our house now....it’s my husbands go-to drink for work. Thanks for sharing it!
Made this today and it's my new go to!
I finally made this today after saving it a couple months ago. It’s so good, definitely going to be drinking this during the 3rd trimester to stay hydrated.
One of our absolute favorites! Always in the fridge during summer.

So, so good! Light and crisp - I can see this being perfect on hot days when we have been working hard outside!
