SIMPLE LEMONADE

1 c. water

5 lemons

¾ c. sugar

4 c. ice-cold water

½ c. fresh mint

Ice cubes

Take one lemon and extract its juice into a small bowl; keep aside. Take two lemons, remove their outer skin and put them in a deep bottomed pan along with water and sugar. Keep the pan on low heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cut a few mint leaves into small pieces and add them to the water once it starts boiling. Then keep it for cooling. Cut the remaining two lemons into thin slices and place them in a large serving jug or pitcher. Pour the sugar mixture into the jug or pitcher through a sieve and add the lemon juice that was kept aside earlier. Add cold water and ice cubes and mix well.
