Sweet Lemon Water Recipe from Linda Epperson

I didn't know what to call this. It is not lemonade but it is sweetened lemon water. I am sure that it has just as many calories in it as regular lemonade if not more. I love this because it is just sweet enough without being overly sweet- it is refreshing. I warn you that once you try this- you will drink several glasses of it before you even realize- and it makes a lot so it would be good for a party or a big group of people!


1 quart of hot water
2 cups of sugar
1 tablespoon Citric Acid (you can buy citric acid at a craft store such as Roberts or Michaels)
1 tablespoon lemon concentrate

Mix this together and put in the fridge.

When your mixture is cold- add 1 1/2 gallons of cold water and 1/2 a bag of crushed ice(Linda suggested the crushed ice you get at Sonic) and lemon slices.
