- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 6 lemons
- 4 cups cold water
In a small saucepan, combine 3/4 cup water and sugar and heat over medium-high heat, until the sugar is dissolved into a simple syrup.
While that's cooking, juice your lemons.
TIP: Roll your lemons on the counter, pressing down with the heel of your hand, to make them easier to juice.
In a pitcher, combine the simple syrup, lemon juice and cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
