Foodie Thursday: Lemonade
Although it's nowhere near as hot as it is back East. it's been warm here as well. It's been into the 80's so in addition to lighter scents, I've been interested in drinking. Not booze mind you because I don't like drinking when it's hot. I was out today and dropped into Fatburger for lemonade. Fatburger has great lemonade- not too tart and not too sweet and you can taste that it's really fresh. On a hot day there's practically nothing better.
Ina Garten (TV's Barefoot Contessa) has a great recipe at the Food Network Site that's just fresh lemons, superfine sugar and water (linking and not copying in case of copyright violation.) For those averse to sugar you could play around with the recipe substituting Stevia or another sweetener. Alternately you could play with limes, grapefruit or a combination of two or all three.
So what are you drinking this summer? Let us know in the comments..
