1. Combine the cold water and sugar in a 2-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool. (This is called a simple syrup, and can be prepared ahead and kept refrigerated.) 2. Combine juice with cold simple syrup in a large pitcher. (For one pound of lemons - 1 cup juice - use 1 cup simple syrup.) Add cold water or seltzer. 3. Serve in tall glasses over ice. Garnish with lemon slices and fresh mint if desired.
