|It’s National Lemonade Day, so whip up a pitcher. The ratio is 1 cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, 1 cup of water and 2/3 cup of sugar for a tart lemonade—you can add more sugar to taste. However, we prefer not to sweeten the lemonade at all since quite a few people prefer calorie-free sweeteners or even honey. We provide a bowl of superfine sugar (it dissolves more easily than regular table sugar) plus Equal or Splenda, some fine artisan honey and a bottle of agave. If you’re using a glass pitcher, slice a small orange, a large lime and a lemon as décor. Add a sprig of mint to each glass, plus a notched strawberry to the rim. We also make ice cubes from lemonade so it doesn’t dilute the drink, and keep them in a color-coded iSi Orka ice cube tray.|
