This lemonade tastes great. Just pour over a glass of ice and enjoy! You must use fresh lemons.

This was okay, but I thought that there was not much depth in the flavor. I have seen other recipes that make some use of the lemon peel, as well, and wonder if that might not be the way to gain more flavor. Also, and this is a personal problem for which I would not detract stars, it seemed a bit too sweet to me. Thank you for posting this recipe. It was interesting to try it.
