    MarielC's Note:

    This is a great lemonade recipe from scratch. You can add more or less sugar depending on your taste. You can make a whole pitcher, or you can refrigerate the syrup to make a glass whenever the mood strikes. The number of lemons you need depends on how juicy they are - you need a total of 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.
