Sweet'tauk lemonade recipes from "Let's make lemonade (and sell it too)" by Deborah Aiza, Montauk NY





Blood oranges have a deep, rich flavor that will have everyone asking, “What did you put in this lemonade? It’s fantastic!?”


  • 2 Cups simple syrup
  • 1 Cup freshly-squeezed blood orange juice (5–6 oranges)
  • 1 Cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice (6–8 lemons)
  • 3 Cups cold, filtered water

What to Do

  1.  Make your simple syrup.
  2. Make your simple syrup following the instructions on page [NUMBER].
  3. Juice your lemons and blood oranges.
  4. Place a strainer over a large bowl. Pour the juice through to remove pulp and seeds. Using a spatula, press down on the pulp to remove any juice that’s still caught in the pulp.
  5. Combine lemon juice, blood orange juice, water, and 1½ cups of simple syrup.
  6. Stir well and taste. Continue to add simple syrup until lemonade is just sweet enough.
  7. Pour into a serving pitcher, add plenty of ice, and serve in tall glasses garnished with a sprig of mint.

QUICK TIP: Try adding a single stalk of lemongrass to the simple syrup while heating. The flavor pairs wonderfully with the blood oranges.
