Introduction: Making Lemonade

Hello everyone. As a child I saw a family member making lemonade. Once I was living on my own and making my own lemonade I started to make it just like my family does. However, when my friends saw how I make it they are astounded. They have never seen or heard of lemonade being made the way my family makes it. However, they always say that it is the best lemonade they have ever tasted. Today I am going to share with you how to make what I believe to be the best lemonade ever.

It is the best lemonade ever because...

- you use the entire interior of the lemon

- you boil the lemons

- you make sure to add the sugar when the lemon water is at its hottest point

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have fun making it as well!
