Hand-Squeezed Sweet Lemonade

This is a delicious lemonade recipe that my sister shared with me once...apparently it was a secret recipe at one point in time, but now I have it so, who knows? Anyway, I will tell you that it is super delicious and can be very addicting too!

This recipe makes 1 gallon of Sweet Lemonade.

10 fresh lemons
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of hot water, boiled is better
Cold Water

1. Squeeze all the lemons until all the juice is out of them all. Strain out the seeds. If you want to keep the pulp you can. I did because I like pulp, but that's just personal preference.
2. Next heat up about 2 cups of water. When its hot pour in the sugar. Stir until it's all dissolved.
3. In a gallon pitcher pour the fresh squeezed lemon juice and the sugar water mix. Stir together.
4. Fill the rest of the pitcher up with cold water.
5. Store in the fridge until ready to use or have a glass right away!

~The lemons got double use since I zested them to use in other delicious lemony recipes!
