Overview

Linda Abernathy of the Arkansas Times exclaims, “Homemade lemonade tastes like sun sparkling across a lake on a summer morning. Compared to its fresh, natural lemon flavor, the instant stuff might as well be lemon-flavored dishwater.” Lemonade is as American as apple pie. In Lemonade, Fred Thompson creates 50 diverse recipes that will take you far beyond the basic lemonade-stand fare of childhood. Ranging from simple to sophisticated, the recipes include such classics as Old-Fashioned Lemonade, new twists like Ginger Lemonade and Watermelon Lemonade; sparkling versions like Lime & Lemonade Cooler; and spiked versions such as Lemonade Martini and Slush Puppy Deluxe. Lemonade is also bursting with gorgeous full-color photography, useful information about buying, juicing, and storing lemons, and has sections on helpful lemonade basics. Whether you are trying an exciting new variation or a more traditional recipe, Thompson will show you that there really is no substitute for a large glass of freshly homemade lemonade.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This delightful book celebrates one of the world’s purest pleasures, a good glass of lemonade. For those used to bottled bug juice, this book will make you stand up and shout hooray.” – Jane and Michael Stern, authors of Eat Your Way Across the U.S.A.

“We Southerners think we know everything about lemonade, but not till I read Fred Thompson’s fascinating book did I realize that the drink could be so versatile and downright sophisticated. He has delved into the subject like nobody else, and never again can I take this old-fashioned refreshment for granted. A delightful new book that should have been written decades ago.” – James Villas, co-author of My Mother’s Southern Entertaining

“The quintessential book on everyone’s favorite lip-smacking refresher. When friends come over I’ll certainly reach for Lemonade!” – Bruce Weinstein, author of The Ultimate Party Drink Book
