If the lemonade is a tad bit bitter for anyone, they can simply add more sugar to taste when served. Oh, and the flavor of this drink is perfect for adding some gin ;-)
Place first three ingredients in a blender, add 4 cups cold water and blend on high speed until limes are slightly chopped.
Place a strainer on top of a pitcher and pour blender ingredients into the pitcher.
Slowly pour the remaining 1 cup water through the strainer over the lime pieces to help release all of the residual sugar and juice.
Place ice cubes in serving glasses, pour mixture over ice, garnish with a lime slice and serve.

Wash lemons and oranges and slice into rounds. Put in large pan (big enough to hold 2 plus gallons). Add 2 cups of sugar sprinkling over tops of fruit. Add enough hot water to just cover the top and mash with a potato masher. Do that long enough to just mix the sugar and fruit well and release some of pulp/juice. But don't pulverize. Add water and ice to equal about 2 gallons. Stir well. Add a couple cap-fulls of the powdered lemonade mix. Stir well and taste. Add sugar or more lemonade mix if desired. Serve in glass of ice with some of the lemon/orange pieces.
You can make an ice ring with maraschino cherries and lemon/orange slices to add on top. Looks pretty in a punch bowl this way.

Source: My grandmother and mother have made this as long as I can remember. I added the powdered lemonade mix. Grandma just used a lot more sugar.
I would like to know how to make homemade Lemonade.
1 cup of lemon juice 1 cup of sugar and then fill the pitcher with water. I recommend you putting some warm water in the pitcher letting the sugar dissolve and then adding them lemon juice and water you might have to add a little bit more sugar to just make it right for you. =)
How do you make the same lemonade you get at fairs and carnivals? They use real lemons, sugar, and I don't know what else but it is delicious. Does anyone know?
I'll bet their secret ingredient is the fun atmosphere of being at the Fair!
