4 medium lemons juiced
1 medium lemon sliced
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup water
2-3 tbsp white granulated sugar for dipping
Pour the 2-3 tbsp of white granulated sugar on a plate and set aside.
Juice the 4 lemons and set aside.
In a small saucepan, add the 1 cup sugar and the 1 cup water. Heat and bring to a simmer till all the sugar has dissolved, turn off heat! This is called "simple syrup"!! I know, the plethora of information I say... but tell me that is not super simple, yes?
Now, let's dredge those lemon slices through the reserved sugar and set aside. Using your favorite pitcher Fill 3/4 with ice cubes. Add your squeezed lemon juice to the pitcher with the ice. Add all of your simple syrup, and stir.
Fill with cold water to your desired level.
