- ¾ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3-4 lemons)
- ½ cup sugar
- 4 cups of water
- Sprigs of fresh mint for decoration (optional)
In a large pitcher, place the lemon juice, sugar, and water; stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour into tall glasses filled with ice cubes. Each glass may be decorated with a sprig of fresh mint.
Variation: ½ cup of freshly squeezed orange juice may be added to the mixture to produce a slightly less tart taste.
