Fresh -Squeezed Lemonade

4 lemons
2/3-1 cup sugar

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add 2/3 cup to 1 cup sugar, stirring to dissolve. Remove from heat.

Roll lemons on counter top to loosen juices. Cut in half, and squeeze juice into a 2 quart pitcher. Add simple syrup (sugar/water), and dilute with cold water to fill pitcher. Chill well before serving.

You could easily substitute limes for the lemons. You can also add strawberries, lavender, or mint!

Yup. The simplest is always the best! Your recipe is the same as mine.
