Citrus makes me happy.

30 years ago my mom planted citrus trees in the backyard. Fast forward to now when I rent said house from my parents (for a killer deal on rent btw, and there's a pool!) and there's citrus every year. For the first year I was convinced it was a lime tree and a grapefruit tree. I was told otherwise at a BBQ that the whole family was at.

The nice thing about having a LEMON (that's right LEMON, not lime)tree is fresh squeezed lemonade!


3 cups fresh lemon juice (about 20 lemons)
2 1/4 cups sugar
12 cups chilled water


Combine juice and sugar in a one-gallon container; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in water. Serve over ice.
