Picnic Lemonade - It's Delicious

You definitely need one of those American Style picnic jugs to tote this delicious drink in! You might also want to fortify with a bit of Gin for the grown ups.

Makes 10 cups - you might want to make sure your ICE will fit into the top of whatever bottle you are going to carry this in... just a thought.

3 cups lemon or lime juice, about 20 lemons or 25 limes freshly squeezed (perhaps lemons - limes are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE unless you have a lime tree!)
2 cups caster sugar
6 cups cold water
2 cups of ice
2 lemons or limes, thinly sliced for garnish
1/2 cup cranberry juice, optional for pink lemonade

Into a large serving container, strain the citrus juice, mix it with sugar, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add 4 cups cold water and cranberry juice, if using, and stir again until well combined. Add ice to fill and a few lemon or lime slices.
