- Make a simple syrup: in a small saucepan over medium heat, dissolve 3/4 to 1 cup of white sugar in 1 cup of water. It doesn't need to boil, just dissolve.
- In a pitcher, add the simple syrup to 1 cup of lemon juice.
- Add in 3 - 4 cups of cold water and stir.
- Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, 45 minutes at least.
You won't ever have a better glass of lemonade! Oh also, I made it with 1 cup of sugar and it was waaaaay too sweet for our taste, so we added in more lemon juice and water to tone it down. But if you like sweeeeet, use 1 cup of sugar.
