Use a lemon squeezer to squeeze out the juice form the lemons, you should get 2 tbsp (30ml) from each discarding the pips & pour in a serving jug then put jug in the fridge.
Place sugar, luke warm water & 1/4 of the lemon peel/shells (1/4 of a lemon shell per serving), then blitz in a food processor or liquidiser to a smooth pulp, strain the pulp in a bowl & a fine sieve, then pour this into the jug of lemon juice the put back in the fridge to chill.
