Bright, sweet, and aromatic, this effervescent cocktail will help you cool down and relax on even the hottest of summer days. When buying lemons, choose those that are firm, plump, and heavy for their size. Skin should be smooth and vibrant, with no tints of green (a sign that the lemon is underripe).
