sparkling lemonade

i keep getting free lemons from friends whose trees are fruiting. these local lemons are not the sort you'd get from the supermarkets, their skins are so thick. I had a few big ones that I thought would be nice and juicy, only to cut them open and find that their skins were 2cm thick!
here's a nice refreshing drink to have on a hot [ish] day. melbourne appears to have regressed and gone back into winter mode for this week...
must be in mourning for its st kilda team!

boil 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water, stirring, till all sugar dissolves. let cool. mix in
1 cup lemon juice and about 1L soda water, taste a bit before adding it all to make sure it's not getting too dilute or too sweet. stir well and add ice. if it's too sweet, add more soda water.
