I used lemons, limes and oranges in my power juicer to make 2 1/2 cups of juice, then made a simple syrup with 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I added these to a gallon pitcher and added water to make 1 gallon of citrusade. Sooo yummy!
Use one cup of sugar if you plan to serve lemonade with a simple syrup. To extract the most juice from lemons, microwave them at HIGH for about 15 seconds.
