Homemade Lemon Squash - a.k.a. Lemonade

I read this story and recipe by Make Grow Gather and fell in love - its so refreshing and tasty.

"We made this with Meyer lemons, which means that as you tip the glass up to take a sip, you first get a waft of light, flowery lemon blossoms. This may sound strange, but it is a beautiful thing.So that is my story of happy in a bottle: friendship and spring and smelling and sharing and making."
Here are the rest of the ingredients, adapted from Pam Corbin's Preserves:

Scrub the wax from 4-5 lemons (or just wash if you’re using freshly picked from a neighbor’s tree), and peel the zest from two of them. Bring a pot of water to the boil, drop the lemons in, and leave for 1 minute.

Remove lemons and leave lemony water in pan. Squeeze juice from the lemons and measure out 2 cups.

In a different pan, add 1 ½ cups of sugar, zest and 2 cups of the lemony water. Heat gently to dissolve the sugar, then bring to a boil. Add lemon juice and bring just to the boil. Remove from heat and strain through a sieve.

To make squash (lemonade), mix one part syrup to four parts water.
