Lemonade is one of those things that goes very much by personal tastes. I prefer mine tart. If you prefer a sweeter lemonade, add a little extra simple syrup and a little less water. If you prefer it to be more watery, add a little extra water or ice. Experiment until it tastes just like you like it.
