when life gives you lemons...
1 c. lemon juice, freshly squeezed
4.5 c. water
2/3 c. sugar
In a small saucepan, put 1 c. water and the sugar; boil until sugar is dissolved, stirring regularly. Once dissolved, set aside and refrigerate to cool. Squeeze lemon juice, removing the seeds of course, but keep the pulp. Once the sugar/water mixture has cooled, pour it and the lemon juice into a pitcher. Add the remaining 3.5 cups of water, and refrigerate or serve over ice.
As you know, I'm not the most patient person, so I let the sugar water get luke-warm, and then mixed mine -- immediately pouring over ice and trying it out. Was good! I like my lemonade a little tart, so if you like it sweet, increase the sugar a bit. Viola!
