Refreshing Aged Balsamic Lemonade

Jun 6, 2022 | Recipe

Has plain old lemonade become just a little boring? Give our Aged Balsamic Lemonade a try! The bright tart lemon flavor blended with the sweet tangy flavor of our Aged Balsamic makes a refreshing drink everyone will love. 

6 servings


First, make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, add the sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool. 

Juice the lemons until you have at least 1 cup of juice.  Any extra juice can be kept in the refrigerator for other purposes.  Depending on the size of the lemon, you will probably need 4 to 6. A trick to getting the lemons to juice easier is to roll the lemons back and forth on a counter or cutting board before cutting them in half. 

To make the lemonade pour the fresh lemon juice and the cooled simple syrup into a serving pitcher. Add 2 cups of cold water and the More Than Olives Aged Balsamic. Taste the mixture. If it is too intense, add 1 more cup of water and re-taste. Adjust the ingredients to your liking.  It is best to chill the lemonade before serving. Remember when you add ice, it will melt and naturally dilute the intensity.

Since it is hard to determine beforehand the flavor profile (sour/sweet) of the lemons you have purchased, the proportions in this recipe may need to be adjusted to create the lemonade that is just perfect for you. 

Serve with ice and sliced lemons.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
