Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade

My grandmother is famous (in our family, at least) for her homemade lemonade. Because it’s been so hot, I decided lemonade would be just the thing for our Fourth of July cookout. The hardest thing about it is squeezing the lemons—definitely worth it!

Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
4 to 6 lemons
3 to 4 cups cold water

1. Microwave sugar and water in a glass measuring cup at HIGH for 2 minutes or until water is hot. Stir to dissolve sugar.
2. Squeeze lemons to measure 1 cup lemon juice. Stir lemon juice into sugar mixture. Add 3 cups cold water; taste and add up to 1 additional cup cold water, if needed.
