Can I adjust the sweetness of this recipe?

This recipe is made to my desired sweetness, but you may reduce the sugar by ½ cup for a more tart lemonade, or add an extra ½ cup for a sweeter lemonade. I’d always suggest that you make it less sweet to start and then add more if you need to, it’s easier to make it more sweet than less sweet as you go!

If you make it too sweet you can always add more lemon juice and water to cut the sweetness a bit, keep that in mind if you find it’s too sweet!
