- Serves 4.
- 2-1/2 cups water
- 2-1/2 cups sugar
- Juice of 8 to 10 freshly squeezed lemons
- 2-4 cups ice cubes
Make a simple syrup by boiling water and sugar together until sugar dissolves. Cool completely. Discard seeds from lemon juice, then add juice until the tartness suits your taste (it will seem strong). Cool. Combine in a blender, gradually adding ice cubes, and process until it reaches a slushy consistency. Garnish with a slice of lemon if desired.
