Fresh Lemonade a Toast to Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer! What's one sure fire way to make it feel like summer? Lemonade! Lemonade is simple to prepare and is a crisp refreshing treat even on the hottest summer nights. I prefer my Lemonade a little on the tart side, so if you've got a real sweet tooth, add a bit more sugar. Here's the How To on my favorite summer drink.
The Deets
7 Lemons for juicing (approximately 1 1/4 Cups Lemon Juice)
1 Lemon for looks
2 Cups Warm Water
3/4 Cup Sugar (I like mine tart - if you want it sweeter add more sugar)
2 Cups Ice
The How To
Juice your Lemons - Remember  if you are using a juicer the lemons need to be peeled or the juice will be bitter
Mix the 2 cups of warm water and sugar to create your base
Add Lemon Juice to sugar water base
Mix Well
Add 2 Cups of Ice
Slice remaining Lemon and add it to the lemonade
Let sit until 1/2 of Ice is melted
Enjoy Your Summer!
