How do you make your lemonade?

I was watching the pioneer women on tv and she books water with the sugar first. Then sets it apart and puts in the lemons. (Then ice of course)

Has any one tried it this way? It is better then just adding lemons,sugar and water?

Anything can be made complicated!  I fill a gallon pitcher with filtered water and wash the outsides of 8 lemons. Cut & seed the lemons then put lemons in the water.  Let the lemons soak and flavor the water for about 15 min then add sugar.  Use a pitcher lid that has a slotted pouring spout and leave the lemons in for a few hours.  You can immediately drink the lemonade ... leaving the lemons in just adds a little more flavor.  You should refrigerate leftover lemonade.

We use the Country Time Lemonaid powder or the K-cups brew over ice stuff.

It gets the sugar dissolved well for better taste adjusting. I make simple syrup then juice one lemon and add simple syrupand fill with water to make lemonade by the glass.
