Grilled Lemonade


5-6 medium lemons

1 lemon, sliced into rings

1 cup white sugar, plus additional for coating

4 cups water

4 cups ice


On a cutting board, halve the lemons and coat the cut sides with a thin layer of sugar.

Place the lemons on the grill cut side down and cook them over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, until caramelized.

Remove lemons from the grill and rest them for 5-10 minutes.

Juice lemons over a fine mesh strainer into a half gallon pitcher. Once all the lemons are juiced, add the white sugar, lemon rings, water, and ice. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.


NOTE: Do not add the ice if preparing ahead of time. Add the ice immediately before serving.
