A Sip of Real Lemonade
Don't get me wrong: like many suburban kids of the 1970's, I was raised on a steady diet of Kool-Aid and Country Time - but I've dabbled in fresh-squeezed as an adult. Teresa of the Rex & Regina blog was kind enough to remind me of how worthwhile a little bit of a calorie splurge can be when it's spent on real sugar. She rounded up a few recipes to quench your thirst for the good stuff:
Patrick O'Connell's Classic Lemonade Recipe
Tyler Florence's Champagne Lemonade
I may have spent my formative years sporting a powdered-pink-lemonade mustache, but I plan to spend the rest of this summer sipping on a tall, cool glass of the real thing. Likely with champagne.
For another summer great drink idea, read about Party Girl's refreshing delicious Boozy Granitas.
