Old Fashioned Lemonade

The thermometer hit 87 degrees yesterday and it was really humid. While it's cooler today, the heat and humidity are going to be roaring back by the end of the week. Time to break out the recipe for Old Fashioned Lemonade.

2 cups fresh lemon juice•
5 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  2. Pour into individual serving glasses filled with ice.

•Note: This recipe can be made super easy (as in not having to juice lemons) by using Italian Volcano Lemon Juice: http://terrygruggen.blogspot.com/2010/10/lemon-juice.html .

  1. The sweetness level is good, but I might pull back a bit on the lemon juice, maybe 1 1/2 cups, it is mighty strong, my gf will not drink it, though I think it is fine.
