Cream? In Lemonade? Yes! It may seem odd at first, but this is so great!
1 cup (250 mL) sugar
4½ cups (1.125 L) water, divided
¾ cup (175 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice (3-4 lemons)
¼ cup (50 mL) 35% cream
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and 1 cup of the water. Heat just until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool as you make the rest. Squeeze the lemons and add the juice to a pitcher along with the remaining 3½ cups of cold water, simple syrup, and cream. Stir and chill before serving.
