Homemade Lemonade

Lemons were cheap enough so I bought a small 2lb bag today and tried out some homemade lemonade.  I used the ratio of 1 cup sugar: 1 cup water: 1 cup lemon juice.

Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and boil gently until sugar is dissolved.  Meanwhile, squeeze lemons until you have 1 cup of lemon juice.  Combine lemon juice and sugar water.  Add 3-4 cups of water. 

We got about 1 1/8 cups of lemon juice and just used that with the 1:1 ratio of sugar and water.  It was a little tart so the 1:1:1 ratio is probably good.  I also read that if you use Meyer lemons they are naturally sweet so you may want less sugar.
