Try this one. You can tinker with it to adjust the tartness/sweetness of it by changing the sugar amount. Steeping the thin lemon slices extracts the lemon oil in the peel and imparts a nice lemony flavor.

KATIE’S LEMONADE
(Serves 6)

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, including pulp (remove seeds)
¾ cup granulated sugar
4 cups spring water
2 lemons

Slice one of the lemons very, very thin (seeds removed) and set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ¾ cup of the water. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and you are left with a simple syrup. Remove from heat and stir in the thinly sliced lemon. Cover and refrigerate until fully chilled.

To serve, strain the chilled lemon syrup into a large pitcher, add the lemon juice, remaining water and the second lemon that has been cut into ¼-inch slices. Stir well and pour over ice.

Besides Lemon-Lime, I am sure there are other variations of Lemonade. It may be a combination of three or more fruits. Maybe it's some sort of lemon todie with mint.

I don't recall making a simple syrup, but i've seen them made on tv, and they all tend to say that your not to stir the sugar and water, only to swirl it, it apparently prevents chrystalization.
Are you supposed to stir this one or swirl it? what do you do? Thx!

All I do is to heat the sugar and water enough to allow the sugar to begin to melt. Then I use a spoon to stir until I no longer feel the grittiness of the sugar on the bottom of the pan. By then I have a nice sugar syrup.
