"Ah, the taste of summer. This classic lemonade recipe is the one my mom used to make for me when I was little. It's the perfect combination of sweet and tart! When using a clear pitcher, adding a few of the juiced lemon halves makes it look prettier."

EXTREMELY simple. Was able to whip some up in about 5 minutes. I put the lemons in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds to warm them up a bit. I then used a glass juicer to squeeze the juice ou...
