National Lemonade Day
August 20, 2015
AUGUST 20, 2015 is National Lemonade day!
At the height of a steamy New York day, nothing is more refreshing than a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade! Spike it with some flavored vodka, infuse it with fresh fruits, or drink it on its own and your are sure to have a moment of relief from all the heat. Drink it on a rooftop and you have a happy hour that can’t be beat.
Whether you make your lemonade with fresh fruit, you pop a can of that reconstituted juice from the freezer, you get down with Country Time in its powder form, you go all new age with these liquid squirters, or you fancy and grab some San Pelligrino Limonata, lemonade is a staple summer drink.
You can slush it, freeze it as a popsicle, infuse it, or spike it with a spirit of your choice. Whether sugary sweet, honey kissed, or tart and zesty, lemonade is one of the easiest and most versatile mixers you have at your disposable as a cocktailer. Its citrus and sugar base allow you to easily and instantly blend a series of new and fun summer refreshers.
One of our favorite recipes for the summer is:
