Directions:
Remove ends from lemons and discard. Remove lemon peel with a knife; set aside. Quarter lemons; squeeze juice into a bowl. Remove and discard white membrane. Place the peel and pulp in a blender or food processor; cover and process until coarsely chopped. Add peel mixture and sugar to lemon juice. Mix well. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Stir in milk. Strain lemon mixture; add club soda and food coloring if desired. Serve immediately in sugar-rimmed glasses if desired.
Sugar-Rimmed Glasses: To make the sugar cling to the rims, moisten them with fresh lemon juice first. Cut a thick slice of lemon into quarters. Make a slit in one of these pieces, then place the rim of the glass into the slit. Rub the lemon piece around the entire rim of glass until it is moistened. Put a small amount of granulated sugar into a shallow dish or saucer. Dip the moistened rim of the glass into the sugar, completely coating the rim. Gently tap the glass to remove any excess sugar. Pour the lemonade into the frosty-topped glasses and enjoy.
