Shake briefly and pour (unstrained) into a pint glass.
Add a straw and garnish with either freshly grated nutmeg or half a strawberry and an orange slice.
Peels of 6 lemons
.75 cup Demerara sugar
6 oz Lemon juice
24 oz Water
PREPARATION: In a bowl, muddle the lemon peels and sugar. Let stand for an hour or two to extract the lemon oil. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate until needed.
We use different units of measurement for solid and liquid ingredients. Liquids are easy to convert from volume to weight—1 cup is 8 ounces, 1 tablespoon is half an ounce, etc.—but that's not the case with solids like sugar. That's why we give measurements for sugar in tablespoons and cups and measurements for liquids in ounces.

You guys are so silly...why are you trying to confuse us with the different units of measurement. 0.75 cups? 6 oz? Seriously? Why not break this recipe down to a simple ratio, I'm sure everyone will appreciate a 4:1:1 (water:demerara sugar: lemon juice)...
