Ice Cold Lemonade

There's nothing like a tall glass of ice cold lemonade during a hot summer day! My absolute favorite is served at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, AL. During football season it's hard to pass up a trip to the corner for some lemonade. I found a couple of recipes online and tweaked them a little to come up with this recipe. It really does taste a lot like the kind served there. It's pretty strong and will absolutely withstand the ice and keep the flavor. Here it goes.

You will need a lemon juicer of some kind. I used a hand held device but if you don't have the tools just squeeze it out with your hands using a fork.

You need to cut the lemons in half then squeeze the juice out into a measuring cup.

You will need about 2 cups of lemon juice.

Strain the juice while you pour it into your pitcher just to make sure to keep the seeds out.

Then, add about 1 1/2 cups of sugar.

Stir well.

Add 4 cups of water and about 1 1/2 cups of ice. Stir again and you're done!! Oh....so good!!

I couldn't resist.
