Orange Blossom Lemonade – The Lemon Bowl®

A refreshing drink for summer, homemade lemonade is flavored with orange blossom water to create the ultimate lemonade recipe.

With the heat of summer just around the corner, I’m getting excited to make a family favorite, my Orange Blossom Lemonade. A trick I learned from my mom and aunts, adding a splash of orange blossom water really elevates your classic, refreshing lemonade. A traditional Middle Eastern ingredient, orange blossom water has zero calories and is nothing more than water infused with orange blossoms.


orange blossom lemonade ingredients
  • Lemon juice: In my opinion, if you’re making homemade lemonade, you need to use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • Sugar: Sweetens and balances out the flavor of the bright, tart lemon juice.
  • Water: A few cups of water bring volume to your lemonade.
  • Orange blossom water: Extremely fragrant and sweet-smelling, it also has a slightly sweet and bitter taste, and a little goes a long way.
