- Add four cups hot water and 1/2 cup pure cane sugar (the recipe on the box says to use 3/4 cup, but that’s too sweet for my taste) to the pitcher.
- Mix well.
- Add the entire bottle of lemon juice – or the juice of seven fresh squeezed lemons.
- Stir to make sure the sugar water and lemon juice are well mixed.
- Slice the fresh lemons in half.
- Then slice those half in half again.
- Then slice each half into fourths. Now you should have sixteen lemon pieces.
- If you are using rimming salt, slice one lemon in fourths and run a piece of lemon it around the top of the glass making sure to squeeze it ever-so-slightly so the lemon juice is released.
- Pour some rimming salt onto a small saucer, turn the glass upside down and gently rub the rim of the glass in the salt.
- As long as there is enough lemon juice on the rim of the glass, the salt will stick. Sometimes it is necessary to add a bit more lemon juice and repeat the process.
- Fill the glasses halfway up with ice.
- Add three of the small lemon slices and a tablespoon of pomegranate* to the glass.
- Fill the glass with ice and top it off with lemonade.
- Add a lemon slice to the top of the glass and a straw.
- Serve immediately.
*Look for the containers of pomegranate pieces instead of buying the whole fruit.
