Here are the basic starting proportions for a sweet lemonade - 1 cup of sugar (you may use less if you prefer or substitute 1/2 cup of honey), 1 cup of water, 1 cup of lemon juice.
Secret: You must first dissolve the sugar with the water in sauce pan over low heat and then cool.
Now squeeze 4-6 lemons (1 cup of juice)
Mix together the juice with the sugar water and add 4 cups of water.
Refrigerate for at least 40 minutes.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
