Lola’s Best Ever Lemonade

4 Lemons
1 quart water
1 cup sugar

Peel lemons and put rinds into a bowl. Cover with sugar and let stand 1/2 hour. Boil water; pour over lemon rind and sugar. When cool, take out rinds. Squeeze lemons, strain, and add to sugar mixture. Chill and serve ice cold. Tastes better when sipped while sitting in a rocking chair on the porch.
