Sometimes you just need a little refreshment. One glass worth, to be exact. Something special, something easy, thirst-quenching, and cold. Some lemonade, for instance.

I love lemonade (but then who hates lemonade?). And I love that it’s a cinch to make, especially by the glass. This recipe could not be simpler – dissolve some sugar, squeeze a couple of lemons and add the juice, stir in water, and then plop in some ice cubes.

And then, of course, drink.
