My Mother's Lemonade

Makes: about 6 cups
Prep time: 2 minutes
Cost: $.60 (for the record, this is only $.10/cup. A cup of Country Time will cost you about $.08/cup)
(sugar: .16, lemon juice: .44)

1 C sugar
1 C lemon juice
4 C water

Mix until combined. Drink.

Want to make it even more special? Crush or tear some fresh mint leaves (they're coming--I've got teeny ones popping out on all my mint) into your lemonade. Stir it up and let it sit in the refrigerator for a while. Strain or spoon out the mint leaves and serve minted lemonade. Hot day meet cool mouth.
