Amazing homemade lemonade (with lime!)

The jubilee bank holiday seemed like a great excuse for a barbecue, unfortunately the weather fairies disagreed so my home made bunting stayed inside along with the jam-jar tea light holders that I made for my birthday barbecue last year. While I didn't add anything new to the barbecue decorations, I decided to make my own lemonade. Or since I love limes so much lemon and limeade, I cannot tell you how easy it was to make (apart from all the lemon squeezing!!), here's my winning recipe.

1 cup lemon juice (or lemon and lime)
1 1/4 cups sugar
6-8 cups water

Dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice over a low heat to make a syrup. I used four small lemons and four limes to make one cup of juice. Allow to cool and then dilute to taste. Serve over ice with fresh mint and sliced lemon.
