5 lbs. sugar
1 pint lemon juice
Create Simple Syrup the day before you want to make the lemonade by pouring 5 lbs. sugar into a gallon jug. Then fill the jug with hot water (preferably heated on the stove). Stir and/or shake until sugar dissolves and solution is clear. Refrigerate overnight. To make one gallon of lemonade, combine 1 pint lemon juice and 2 pints Simple Syrup in a gallon container. Finish filling container with water and ice. Stir well. –An Auburn Tradition.
