Easy Peasy Chick-fil-A Lemonade At Home

Guests sipped tea and lemonade out of mason jars during the cocktail hour.

I sincerely hope you have all had the pleasure of visiting and dining at a Chick-fil-A at least once in you lifetime!
Everyone at Chick-fil-A is so polite! Upon ordering the waiter ends each sentence with; " My pleasure". Much like the Chick-fil-A staff members, the restaurants are always clean and well kept. In fact, whenever Rich and I talk about moving out of state, I always mention that I will move anywhere with him, under one condition .  .   . we have to move to an area that has a Chick-fil-A within a close proximity!!!!

Actually a Chick-fil -A and a Cracker Barrel, but now I'm getting off track, another story for another day. :)

I absolutely love the lemonade at Chick-fil- A, there is no other like it and in my opinion, it really is the BEST lemonade in the entire world!!!
I know, I kinda have this lemonade on a pedestal! But, it is truly deserving of all the hype! This lemonade comes in both diet and regular. It has the perfect combination of both sweet and tart. With just the right amount of pulp. This delightful little treat makes me smile!

Recently, while searching for the recipe for this thirst quenching lemonade, I stumbled upon this recipe for Chick- fil-A Copycat Lemonade!! I made it this morning and let me tell you . .  .
It truly does taste identical to Chick-fil-A's!
So, run on down to your local grocery store and pick up the following ingredients and enjoy a lovely summer afternoon with a tall,cold, refreshing glass of Chic-fil-A Copycat Lemonade!

Cheers!!!

Chick-fil-A Copycat Lemonade

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 Lemons (Sunkist brand is what Chick-fil-a uses)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (use Splenda, Agave, or other sweeteners for the diet version)
    • When using Splenda, Agave, or other sweeteners use only 1/2 cup, then taste and add more to your preference
  • 5 1/2 cups water

Instructions:

1. First, juice your lemons so you end up with 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.
2. Add the lemon juice and sugar to the pitcher.
3. Add 5 1/2 cups of lukewarm water to the sugar and lemon juice; whisk together well until sugar is completely dissolved.
4. Refrigerate until nice and cold. Garnish with fresh lemon slices. Enjoy!
Serves 4-6.

Blessings,
