Nothing is better than fresh squeezed lemonade made with homegrown lemons. Lemons off the tree in my backyard just make such a tasty treat. especially with mounds of sugar, and a frozen strawberry or two.

1 1/4 cups white sugar
5 2/3 cups water
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Boil the sugar and 1 cup water together till sugar is dissolved. chill. Mix it all together.

I like to use a little less sugar (scoop up a cup and then shake a little of the sugar out) and a little more lemon juice (but only a little) It's also good with a frozen strawberry or two as ice cubes. the strawberries add the perfect flavor.
