6 Servings
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 – 3 cup of cold water

Note: I like to use 1 cup of Grade B maple syrup in my lemonade.  It gives it a unique flavor. And it's a healthier sweetener then sugar.

First make a ”simple syrup". Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir so that the sugar dissolves completely and remove from heat.
While the water is heating for the simple syrup, juice your lemons. Depending on the size of the lemons and how juicy they are, 4 to 6 of them should be enough for one cup of juice.
Pour the juice and the simple syrup into a serving pitcher. Add 2 to 3 cups of cold water and taste. Add more water if you would like it to be weaker. Remember that when you add the ice, it will also make the lemonade weaker.
Refrigerate 1 hour before serving with ice and lemon slices.
