DIRECTIONS

  • Cut lemons in half lengthwise and slice thinly, as if for garnish.
  • Mash them with the sugar and salt in a large, deep bowl or crock with an old-fashioned potato masher or heavy wooden spoon until the slices give up their juice, the sugar is dissolved and the juice is syrupy, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour about half the lemon slices into a sieve over a bowl or pot, pressing the solids to release as much liquid as possible.
  • Discard the solids and transfer the liquid to a serving pitcher.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining lemons.
  • Stir in the water until blended.
  • Add ice cubes or chill, stirring just before serving over ice.
