Perfect Lemonade

Perfect Lemonade
  1. 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
  2. 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
  3. 1 cup lemon juice
  4. 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
  1. Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
  2. While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
  3. Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher.
  4. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength.
  5. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
  6. Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
