Hello all,

I am planning a baby shower BBQ for my sister. I would like to have a large cooler with the spout of lemonade to serve 30-50 people. I like the old fashioned sweet lemonade. Please let me know if you have any recipes. Thank you.

First figure out how many quarts your cooler holds, then buy frozen lemonade in an amount that will almost fill the cooler, with a little room left for ice.

Old Fashioned Lemonade
In the 1800's this is how people made lemonade - you can do it too! It's wonderful! This makes about four 8-ounce glasses.
All you need is:

4 Lemons

1 cup Sugar

1 quart Water


To make it: Peel the rinds from the lemons with a paring knife and cut them into " slices. Set the lemons aside. Place the rinds in a mixing bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Let stand for one hour so that the sugar begins to soak up the lemon oil.

Bring the water to a boil in a covered saucepan and carefully pour the hot water over the sugared lemon rinds.

Allow the mixture to cool for 20 minutes and then remove the rinds with a mixing spoon.

Squeeze the lemons into another bowl, then pour the juice through a strainer into the sugar mixture.
