Tasty Tuesday - When life gives you lemons

A friend gave us a bag full of lemons she picked from her back yard that screamed to be turned into fresh lemonade. They were so big and juicy I couldn't wait to cut them open!

 This recipe is tart and tasty and would be perfect on a warm summer day, especially mixed with vodka...just saying :). Plus, since it uses Splenda instead of regular sugar it's basically guilt free!

1 serving = 2 cups 

2.5 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice 
1 cup hot water
2 cups Splenda or Sugar (recipe is made with Splenda)
1 Gallon cold Water  
1 lemon sliced thin. Cut slices in half

1. In a 1 gallon container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves.

2. Add lemon juice and cold water to render 1 gallon. Stir until well mixed.

3. Place cut lemon in pitcher. Pour into glasses filled with ice.
