• 2 large lemons
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 quarts water
  • Ice cubes


  1. Squeeze the lemons. Save some of the pulp. Throw out the rinds and the seeds. Pour the lemon juice into a large pitcher.
  2. Add the water. Add the sugar and stir together.
  3. Put the pitcher into the fridge for an hour or so. Stir again before serving. Add some ice cubes and enjoy.

Tip: To make it fancier, scrub off the outside of another lemon. Slice it into rounds and add one or two rounds to the outside of the pitcher, hanging off the side.
