No-Fail Lemonade

There was a time when my Lemonade was hit and miss. Sometimes it was great, sometimes not.
But then I discovered a few tricks I'll share with You.

You'll need
2-Quart Pitcher
2 Lemons
3/4cup Sugar-you may prefer it sweeter

First, buying lemons.
Don't go for the pretty glossy lemons in the bin.
For Lemonade you want the duller ones, they are the ripest.
Next, heat the lemons in the microwave about 30 second,
to warm the juice, this will help the pulp to burst open.
Wash Hands.
Remove the warm lemons from the microwave and roll them on the counter for 30 second each.
Hold the lemon over the pitcher, quarter them and drop them into the pitcher.
Add 1/2 cup hot tap water and 3/4 cup sugar to the lemons.
Reach into the pitcher and rub/crush the pulp on the lemon wedges.
Stir, Add a few ice cubes, and fill with water. Comes out perfect every time.
