Making lemonade in a mason jar is easy and only requires 3 ingredients!
There are few things more refreshing on a hot summer day than a cool glass of lemonade. While fresh lemons can be delicious, they are also time consuming because you have to squeeze each one. This 3 ingredient lemonade in a mason jar recipe only requires — wait for it — 3 ingredients and a mason jar to create the easiest and tastiest lemonade ever.
The secret is bottled lemon juice
That’s right! The secret to the lemon flavor in this recipe is bottled lemon juice straight from the grocery store shelves. I like to keep a large bottle on hand so I can whip up this lemonade at a moments notice. It’s delicious enough for a dinner party, but easy enough for an everyday picnic. My kids love it too, so it often makes it to the table for a week night meal.
Which Mason Jar should I use?
The recipe below is for a 2 quart mason jar (also known as a half gallon or 64oz). This is the same size as a standard pitcher and will serve a family of 4-6 people. However, you can also use a quart or a pint. A quart mason jar (32oz) will serve 2 to 3 people, so it’s perfect for a date night. If you are looking for a personalized glass of lemonade to keep to yourself, use a pint (16oz). You can find adjustments for the different sized jars in the notes of the recipe.
The Ergo Spout® Fits Regular Mouth Mason Jars
No matter the size of the jar, if you want to use an Ergo Spout® to easily pour your lemonade from a mason jar, then we recommend a regular mouth size. Fortunately, there are a variety of mason jars that come with the regular mouth. As mentioned above, 2 quart, quart and pints that have a regular mouth version will all fit the Ergo Spout®!
