In a small saucepan, combine lemon peel segments, sugar and equal parts water. Adjust the amount of sugar depending on your sweetness preference.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat. Allow to cool completely.
In a large pitcher, combine 9 cups of water, lemon juice, cranberry juice, and salt. Adjust the hue of the lemonade by adding more or less cranberry juice.
Remove the lemon peel segments from the simple syrup. Add to lemonade. Stir to combine.
Pour lemonade through a fine mesh sieve to remove any pulp, if desired.
