Making lemonade is quite easy, but getting it to taste just perfect (with the right amount of sweetness and the right amount of lemon) can take some practice. A few secrets to getting the perfect lemonade include using a lemon simple syrup and even mixing lemon zest into the sugar you use to make it. Lemon zest is an amazing flavor component to include in your lemonade, and it’s right there on the lemon to use!

Now, when it comes to snacking on lemonade, that’s a different story. You can enjoy lemonade whenever and however you want, but it goes especially well with savory foods like vegan BBQ ribs or a delicious pasta salad. Check out below for a few ideas to get you started.
