Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade

Summertime is here and it’s time to cool off with a refreshing drink.

1 cup water
1 1/2 cups sugar
rinds of 2 lemons
1 cup lemon juice
4 cups cold water
ice

In small saucepan, make a syrup by adding 1 cup water, sugar and lemon rinds. Stir on medium low heat until sugar dissolves completely, and boil for 7 minutes. Cool. In a large pitcher, combine syrup, lemon juice and 4 cups of cold water. Stir well and serve immediately over ice.
