I make lemonade this way, except I use a cup of splenda... mixed with a cup of lemon juice and bring it to a boil til it disolves, then add 5 cups of water. I add fresh mint to it and let it set all day. My kids come over and like magic, its all gone! I have added fresh pineapple that has been put through the blender to it, and it makes a slush that is out of this world! The very best way I have found to make lemonade is like this recipe says... Yum! glad you posted it... with spring coming we all look forward to fresh lemonade.
