Easy Homemade Lemonade

Country Time just isn't as good as I remembered? I think I've been spoiled by the strong flavors of fresh squeezed lemonade at Spring festivals and the wonderfully tart lemonade at Chick-fil-A. I searched online for a homemade recipe and I found a winner! Simple Homemade Lemonade
Heat 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar until a simple syrup is formed.
Add 1 cup of lemon juice (I used 1 1/2 of the lemon shaped "squirters" in the produce section.
Pour into your pitcher and add 3-4 cups of water. I'd taste it after 3 cups and add more if you'd like. I ended up using 3.5 cups.
Enjoy homemade lemonade at your 4th of July celebrations!
