      BEST lemonade ever! I used half lemons and half limes (limes were on sale!). I half filled a 2 quart pitcher with ice and then added the syrup and water. Tasted and needed about 1/2 cup more water. I ended up with a little over 2 quarts (including the ice). Everyone thought it was great but my husband couldn't believe how much work was involved for one pitcher of lemonade...BUT it was worth every minute! Thanks for sharing, Rita, this will be the lemonade recipe I use from now on!

      Looks good, going to try it because I have lots of lemons. On the nutritional info, fat was listed. This makes no sense to me, because of course there is no fat in lemonade! The only ingredients are lemons, sugar and water, so how on earth could there be any fat?
