Squid Mixes: Lemonade
Fresh lemonade is a beautiful thing. I remember having it for the first time at a Ben & Jerry's, of all places, in DC's Adams Morgan neighborhood. The recipe in Kester Thompson's Mocktails is straightforward: fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup and water. While it is simple enough to buy sugar syrup, Thompson and most others recommend making your own so I did - a little more time-consuming but easy enough. We all like our lemonade tart so a half-cup of the syrup, against a cup of lemon juice, was enough.
For the curious: 1 cup of juice required 3.5 lemons.
