1 part sugar
1 part lemon juice
5 parts water

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.

for 5 gallons - (Trust me, it doesn't last...)

3 lbs sugar (or less if you want it more tart)
1 big bottle Lemon juice
1 1L bottle 100 proof Vodka
water to 5 gallons

Carbonate and serve - Puts Mike's and all the other to shame......

(I use an old pepsi keg to hold/carbonate/serve it)

I think at 13, miguzigoldfish might be a little young for the vodka version!

Just adding CO2 so it's nice and Fizzy. I use an old soda keg, and I have a CO2 tank and regulator - so I can put it on tap, just like a bar would.

I would think another option would be to use club soda or the like, and mix it in the galss.

Barb, do you have to use fresh lemons...or do you think you could use the bottled juice concentrate?
