6 cups water
3/4 raw sugar
1 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed or from a bottle)
1/2 dozen ice cubes
In a small sauce pan, boil sugar and 1 cup of water until sugar has fully dissolved. Remove from heat and put some ice in pan to cool simple syrup solution. In a pitcher combine remaining water lemon juice, and ice.
Personally, I like it a bit more diluted, while my husband likes it as strong as this recipe makes it.
Either way, it is a great starting point. You can adjust the ingredients as you so choose!
