DIRECTIONS

  • To get the most juice, let lemons stand at room temperature (or microwave lemons on High for just a few seconds before squeezing them). Then roll the lemons on a counter while pushing down firmly (to break the tissues inside) to release more juice.
  • Mix water, lemon juice, and sugar in a large pitcher until sugar is dissolved.
  • Refrigerate about 3 hours or until thoroughly chilled.
  • Pour lemonade over ice cubes in a tall glass. Garnish each serving with a lemon slice and maraschino cherry.
  • NOTE - Individual tastes for sweetness vary, so feel free to adjust the sugar to suit taste preferences.
