1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 1/2 - 3/4 sugar
8 cups water
Mix sugar w/ one cup of boiling water (I just use VERY HOT water from my tap, or nuke it). Mix rest of ingredients together and stir. If you are too tired to juice real lemons, you can cheat and use the store bought juice. I also slice a lemon and add the wedges to the pitcher. Be VERY CAREFUL if you are using a glass pitcher...it will crack of lemonade is HOT. That is why I use HOT TAP water for the one cup and cold water for the remaining 7 cups. Serve with crushed ice then go sit out on the porch and tell me that doesn't make all your worries go away!!
I will be doing something else with my lemonade and I hope to show you in the next few days!! NO, it isn't trying it w/ Jack Daniels either!!!
