I Love the tart and sweetness of lemonade.Lemons can get pretty expensive when they are not in season so I usually make this during the summer when lemons are at a reasonable price. Feel free to garnish with slices of lemons or mint.

  • 1 34-2 cups sugar (The sweeter the lemons the less sugar you will need)
  • 2 cups water
  • 7 cups water (or enough to fill the gallon pitcher)

Directions

  1. Squeeze lemons (about 10 medium size lemons)( I usually use my citrus juicer) . Strain juice of lemons in col lender to make sure all pulp from lemons are removed. measure 1 3/4 cup of lemon juice and pour into one gallon pitcer.
  2. in a sauce pan combine 1 3/4- 2 cups of sugar (depending on taste) with 2 cups of water over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved( about 4minutes).
  3. Let cool slightly and pour into pitcher with lemon juice and fill rest with water.
