Fresh Lemonade

Things are warming up around our neck of the woods, and the children were just saying how they want to set up a Fresh Lemonade stand at the restaurant one day. I'll try and remember to come back here and add pictures and a story line to my blog afterwards. Anyhoo, I thought maybe some of you would like to give this one a try.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice (6 to 8 large lemons)
5 cups cold water

Dissolve sugar in boiling water to make a simple syrup. Remove from heat. Add cold water and lemon juice. Refrigerate. Serve over ice. Garnish with fresh mint or lemon wedge.
PS..Do not use lemon juice from concentrate. You really must squeeze the lemons for a fresh lemonade!
