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 (^__^)"


1 1/2 cups Fresh squeezed lemon juice; (takes about 12 lemons)
1/2 cup Sugar
6 cups Water; divided

Original recipe makes 1



Add the lemon juice, sugar and one cup of water. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then add in the remaining 5 cups of water. Add plenty of ice.

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.
