Heat the sugar in a little of the water to dissolve. Add the juice and the rest of the water. After the first time you make this, you can adjust the juice or sugar for tartness.

Barb, do you have to use fresh lemons...or do you think you could use the bottled juice concentrate?
I'm supposed to drink 2 quarts of lemonade a day (doctor's orders--kidney stones), and I can't afford fresh lemons all the time, so I use bottled. It works fine. In fact, I have found that the cheap dollar store stuff is just as good.

So, I guess it's just diluted as per instructions on the bottle? I don't have any right now, but when you give the quantity of lemon juice, I'm assuming that this is fresh lemon juice, right?

I'll amend what I said--fresh is of course best, but bottled (even the cheap stuff) is good. 8)

If you are talking about ReaLemon, and such, you measure it just like fresh lemon juice.

Grate one peeled cucumber into your extra tangy lemonade. Strain. Serve ice cold. Very good.
