Easy Lemonade

2 large lemons
1 cup sugar (or less depending on your taste)
7 cups water

Wash the lemons and cut off the ends and any bad spots. Slice thinly, leaving the rinds on.

Put in a blender with the sugar and 2 cups of the water. Blend on high speed until slushy. Pour through a strainer into a large pitcher.

Pour the remaining water over the contents in the strainer. Discard strainer contents (good for freshening the garbage disposal!). Stir, add ice and enjoy!

For variety, we like to put the lemonade in the blender with ice and some strawberries to make a strawberry/lemonade slushie.
