Servings 8


  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Utensils
  • Cutting Board
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Lemon Juicer
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Pitcher


For The Dill Pickle Lemonade:

  • 8-10 Ounces Mount Olive’s Pickle Juice Only
  • Fresh Lemonade
  • 1 Quart Ice
  • Pickles Spears For Garnishing

For The Fresh Lemonade:

  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice From About 10-12 Lemons
  • 3 Cups Cold Water


  • Use the cutting board and Chef’s knife to cut up 10-12 lemons. We recommend cutting the lemons directly in half to make juicing them easier.
  • Using the lemon juicer, juice all of the lemons into a measuring cup. Make sure no lemon seeds fell into the measuring cup, removing the seeds if there are any. There should be 1 cup of lemon juice, if not, cut up and juice more lemons to achieve the one cup goal.
  • Add one cup of lemon juice to the pitcher.
  • Measure the cold water using the measuring cup. Add the three cups of cold water to the pitcher with the lemon juice.
  • With a measuring utensil, measure out a ½ cup of sugar. Add it to the pitcher with lemon juice and cold water. Give it a good mix with a long mixing spoon.
  • Measure out 10 ounces of pickle juice from the Mount Olive’s Dill Pickles jar. Pour into the pitcher of lemonade. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour in a glass to serve and garnish with pickle spears. Enjoy!
