Grandma's Lemonade

One of my favorite childhood memories was spending time at my Grandma Owens' house. She had raised four rambunctious boys and continued to have unlimited patience with her four also-rambunctious grandkids. Whenever we came to visit we would spend hours in the pool or playing "store" with her hundreds of poker chips. She would also always have unlimited glasses of her homemade lemonade available for us. Grandma hand squeezed the plentiful lemons that grew on a gigantic tree in her front yard and froze extra so that we could enjoy it year round . Drinking her lemonade can bring back so many memories of being young so I decided to get her recipe and make it for us. Here it is:
juice of 4-5 medium lemons (1 cup)
1/2 cup sugar
medium pitcher
Fill the pitcher with the lemon juice and sugar then fill to the top with cold water. Stir before pouring. Enjoy!
