- 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 –3/4 cup white sugar (start with the 1/2 cup and add as you go according to your own taste)
- Combine all the ingredients in a pot over medium heat on the stove. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, stirring to make sure the sugar crystals are dissolved. Turn off heat and let sit to cool slightly before pouring it into a glass jug. Place in the fridge until cold.
