Homemade Old Fashioned Lemonade

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Juice from 4-6 lemons
4 cups cold water


Blend 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar well in small
saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently,
until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool and 
refrigerate. Mix the syrup well with the juice
from 4-6 lemons (strained or not, as you like)
and stir well. Add 4 cups cold water and mix. Try
using sparkling water for some fizz! Pour into
thermos or large jug, adding thin lemon slices 
if you'd like. I like to make more lemonade and
freeze it in ice cube trays, adding the cubes to
the lemonade so it's never diluted.
