Homemade Lemonade

6-8 lemons {enough to make 1 c. lemon juice}

1 c. water

1 c. sugar

4-5 cups ice water

In a saucepan, combine 1 c. water and the sugar.  Over medium heat, cook, stirring occasionally until all the sugar dissolves.

Meanwhile, cut lemons in half {make sure they are at room temperature}and juice, removing the seeds.  In a large pitcher combine the sugar/water combo, freshly squeezed lemon juice and an additional 4-5 cups of cold ice water.  I recommend starting with 4 cups and if it is still too sweet, add another cup.

Chill for at least one hour before serving.
