So simple

"I made this for my family b.b.q today it was great! I didn't need 12 lemons, it only took 6 for me. I also added 3 more tablespoons of sugar. My family said that even with the extra sugar it was quite tart and yummy. I would definately make this again, thank you for the recipe (^__^)"

Refreshing but I didn't need that many lemons. It was delicious though.

It was really good but I agree with others it needed more sugar. I used 3/4 Cup.

Perfect. We used more sour lemons and sweeter ones. Delish. Added about 1/4 C more sugar. Let the mixture sit and whisk it periodically so sugar dissolves well.
