  • Stir together sugar and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan over medium-high, and cook, stirring often, just until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and cool 10 minutes.

  • Pour sugar syrup into a large pitcher. Add 4 cups ice, and stir until ice is mostly melted, about 1 minute. Add reserved lemon juice and remaining 2 cups water; stir to combine.
