Whether it's enjoyed at a lemonade stand or a summer party, a glass of cool, refreshing lemonade holds a nostalgic spot in our hearts. You could use lemonade from concentrate, but why not enjoy freshly squeezed lemonade? (It's super simple!) Flavor your classic tart drink with strawberries or watermelon, or spike it with a bit of vodka for an adult take on the summer sipper.
There's something about a fruit tart that feels elevated even when there's nothing fussy or difficult about putting it together. Take this one to new heights with a drizzle of lavender-infused honey and a few candied lemon slices.
Mix up the simple, four-ingredient (plus water) base of this pitcher cocktail and simply set out options for guests to customize their smash cocktail. Author Gaby Dalkin recommends vodka, tequila, white rum, or sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon.
Bring an easy-to-share platter of this favorite low-country recipe to the table and everyone will be impressed. We call for smoked kielbasa or andouille sausage for this seafood boil since it's already cooked, that way you only have to worry about cooking until the shrimp is done without worrying about overcooked shrimp. Toss in the lemon halves last to squeeze over the shrimp and sausage boil for bright fresh flavor.
