This Maple Lemonade is inspired by Maine and made with just lemon juice, maple syrup, and water. It’s a refreshing cold drink for summer or fall!
You guys know that I have a pretty strong attachment to this state that I call home. It inspires me. From our rocky coast to our potato fields, this place consistently takes my breath away and reminds me just how lucky I am. And you all should visit this summer so you’ll know what I’m talking about 😉
And when you visit, make sure you grab several bottles of Maine Root. Maple Lemonade, it’s pretty amazing stuff, one of my favorite drinks ever, but it can be a bit hard to find.
Whenever I see it, I always grab a bottle or two because they’re just THAT good. But since I don’t find it often, I decided it was time to make my own version here at home. This recipe is made with just fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, and water.
It’s a simple drink that packs both cozy and bright flavors and is perfect for cooling down on a sunny afternoon! Plus, the maple syrup eliminates the need for granulated sugar or simple syrup. This means it’s a slightly healthier alternative to traditional lemonade.
It’s imperative that you use 100% pure maple syrup for this Maple Lemonade since it has a stronger, richer flavor than regular store-bought syrups and is also thinner, making it better for mixing.
Every sip of this Maple Lemonade tastes like home to me, and I think that no matter where you live, it will feel the same for you because we all grew up on lemonade and pancakes, right? Or at least I hope so, and for those that didn’t, I wish you all the lemonade and pancakes in the world!
Maine Maple Lemonade
- 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup

- 100% Pure Maple Syrup is best as other store-bought versions tend to be thicker and have less flavor. So use them at your own risk.
