If you’re looking for a refreshing drink on a hot day, nothing beats a glass of cold, homemade lemonade. But forget the store-bought stuff – this recipe for country-style lemonade is easy to make and tastes so much better. Here’s how to make the best country-style lemonade:


  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 cups cold water
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon slices and fresh mint (optional, for garnish)


  1. Start by making a simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. While the simple syrup is cooling, squeeze the lemons to get 1 cup of juice. You can use a juicer or simply squeeze them by hand. Make sure to remove any seeds.
  3. In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, simple syrup, and 5 cups of cold water. Stir well.
  4. Taste the lemonade and adjust the sweetness to your liking. If it’s too tart, add more simple syrup. If it’s too sweet, add more lemon juice or water.
  5. Chill the lemonade in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or until very cold.
  6. When you’re ready to serve, fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the lemonade over them.
  7. Garnish with lemon slices and fresh mint, if desired.

Enjoy your delicious homemade country-style lemonade!


  • For a variation, you can add a splash of sparkling water or club soda to the lemonade for some fizz.
  • If you don’t have fresh lemons, you can use bottled lemon juice, but the flavor won’t be as bright and fresh.
  • You can also add other flavors to the lemonade, such as sliced strawberries or raspberries, or a sprig of rosemary or thyme for a more herby taste.

DUBLIN, Ohio /PRNewswire/ — Wendy’s® and T-Pain (also known as FROS-T-PAIN) are bringing the ultimate chill vibes this summer with the drop of the ‘Buy U a Frosty®’ music video, directed by SixTwentySix’s Miles & AJ, and a FREE small Frosty with purchase promotion. GRAMMY-winning artist and entrepreneur T-Pain reimagined his chart-topping hit single ‘Buy U a Drank’ to highlight the feeling of sheer delight while enjoying a Frosty. ‘Buy U a Frosty®’ drops today on Wendy’s YouTube channel and soon can be used as an original song on TikTok – so you’ll be able to snag a Frosty and duet away!

It’s Frosty Time: T-Pain recreates iconic ‘Buy U a Drank’ track into a Frosty anthem for the Summer

“I loved Wendy’s ‘We Beefin?’ mixtape back in 2018, and knew I wanted to work with them when the time was right. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to remake a classic with one of the most classic menu items of all time – the Wendy’s Frosty,” says T-Pain.

‘Buy U a Frosty®‘ Music Video

Packed with nostalgia, the music video opens with T-Pain in his studio, which then morphs into a Wendy’s restaurant, where Frosty treats are abundant, and the vibes are high. With his signature swagger, T-Pain steps up to the mic and performs a summer Frosty anthem. As he savors the final bite of his Frosty, reality sets in – all special effects have disappeared, and T-Pain realizes he’s been in a complete Frosty Time daze and has been sitting in a Wendy’s booth all along.

“Wendy’s loves collaborating with authentic artists and creators, and T-Pain is as real as it gets,” said Carl Loredo, Global Chief Marketing Officer for The Wendy’s Company. “‘Buy U a Frosty®’ masterfully captures the nostalgic feeling you get when you dip into a Frosty – a feeling that has the power to transport you to your favorite places and times.
