1 Cup(s) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
3/4 Cup(s) sugar
4 Cup(s) cold water
Combine lemon juice, sugar, water, and ice in a large pitcher. Stir. Garnish with lemon slices. Enjoy in a tall glass over ice.
You can add more or less sugar to taste. I’ve seen similar recipes with as much as a cup of sugar, others with half a cup. I’ll tell you right now half a cup is too little. Unless you like to make that sour lemon face. Some people make a big deal about disolving the sugar in the lemon juice first and then adding the other ingedients. I think that’s nuts. It all disolves eventually.
There are a bunch of recipes based on making a lemon syrup by simmering the lemon juice with the sugar. But the whole idea of cooking the lemon juice just doesn’t say fresh to me.
