Homemade Lemonade

After a long afternoon of yard work this weekend, Ava and I decided to make lemonade. not the country time kind, but actual lemonade with real lemons!

Homemade Lemonade:
2 large lemons juiced (I use the basic juicer which looks like a cone over a bowl, you can squeeze them through a strainer if you don't have a juicer) Set aside
In a small saucepan over medium heat warm 4 cups of water with 1/2 cup of sugar, stir as it heats and as soon as the sugar dissolves remove from heat
Add your lemon juice, stir and pour over ice. yummm! I garnished ours with lemon wheels, however, strawberries, basil leaves, and mint are pretty garnishes that add different flavors.
