This makes a great lemonade, much better than the citric acid based ones you can buy in the grocery store, of course because it is freshly made, and you can control how much sugar there is in it, but it also really tastes like lemons. Very refreshing with ice on a hot day, and sour like lemonade should be. You can also substitute limes, but you'll need 1-1/2 to 2 times more. I halved the recipe I got from Martha Stewart.

2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 10-12 lemons)
1 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups water

In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup lemon juice and the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and let syrup cool.

When it is cooled, stir together lemon syrup, remaining 1 cup lemon juice, and water.

Serve over ice.
