Lemonade with Oranges and Lemons

I am not sure where my mom got this 'recipe', but she made it many times for the 8th grade graduations when she was teaching. It is a refreshing drink to make and have in the fridge during the summer. Easy to remake, too. I quartered the lemons and oranges this time to make them easier to get in this container. I like using water/milk jugs because they are easy to shake and mix.

Lemonade with Oranges and Lemons

Country Time Lemonade mix
3 lemons
3 oranges

In the large Country Time(around $6 from Sam's or Walmart) is a scoop that is about 2-3 T. Put 6 scoops of lemonade in a gallon container. Add 2 (lemonade) scoops of sugar to the container. Slice up oranges and lemons(sometimes I only use 2 lemons and 2 oranges depending on their size) Add the fruit to the container. Add water and mix well.

When you finish drinking the lemonade, just add 6 scoops of lemonade mix and 2 scoops of sugar to the lemons and oranges and make up another batch. Keep using the same oranges and lemons until they turn bitter.....you may get 6 or 7 gallons out of one batch of fruit!
