  • 1-1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 cup cold water


Servings 2


Step 1

Mash lemons and sugar in large, deep bowl or saucepan with potato masher or
wooden spoon until lemon slices give up their juice, sugar is dissolved,
and juice is thickened to syrup consistency, about 4 minutes. Pour half the
lemon slices and syrup through large sieve over bowl or saucepan; press on
solids with masher or back of wooden spoon to release as much liquid as
possible. Discard solids; transfer liquid to serving pitcher. Repeat
process with remaining lemon slices. Stir in water until blended. Chill
well and stir to blend before serving, over ice if desired.
