Homemade Lemonade (times two)

I've got two recipes for you.

Recipe #1: Homemade Lemonade (original recipe found here)
Time Needed: 10 minutes
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 2 cups sugar, 1 cup hot water, 2 cups fresh lemon juice, 1 gallon cold water

Directions: In a 1 gallon container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice and cold water to render 1 gallon. Stir until well mixed. Pour lemonade over glasses of ice.

Recipe #2: Homemade Sparkling Lemonade (original found here)

Time Needed: 1 hour (or so)
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 10 large lemons, zested and squeezed, 1 1/2 c sugar, 1 1/2 c hot water, 4 c club soda, iceDirections: Juice your lemons and gather enough zest for 1 teaspoonful. Add this, the juice, hot water, and sugar into an airtight jar and shake the heck out of it until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate for at least an hour. When serving, fill a pitcher full of ice and pour the lemonade and club soda over the top.

Bonus idea: Shave some ice, form it into balls, and add that to your glass of lemonade. Yummy yummy!
