Here are the ingredients that you’ll need:
•    1 C. water
•    1 C. sugar
•    Juice from 4-6 lemons
•    4 C. cold water

1.    Blend 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a small saucepan.
2.    Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool and refrigerate.
3.    Mix the syrup well with the juice from 4-6 lemons (strained or not, as you like) and stir well.
4.    Add 4 cups of cold water and mix.
5.    Pour into thermos or large jug, adding thin lemon slices if you’d like.

Tips: Try using sparkling water for some fizz!  Make more lemonade than you need and freeze it in ice cube trays, adding the cubes to the lemonade so it's never diluted.
