My sister and I spent a week each summer with Aunt Frances, who always had this thirst-quenching lemonade in a stoneware crock in the refrigerator. It tastes so much like fresh citrus. It made such a refreshing drink after a hot day running around the farm. —Debbie Reinhart, New Cumberland, PA.
This thirst-quenching drink is perfect for a summer picnic or family get-together. When I serve it in a punch bowl, I'll often make an ice ring of ginger ale with a few berries in it to float on top rather than use ice cubes.
"With five teenagers, we go through lots of beverages," notes field editor Kathy Kittell of Lenexa, Kansas. "This thirst-quenching tea is easy to mix up and had a sparkling citrus flavor we all enjoy."
I used to make a similar beverage with orange juice concentrate, but I enjoy lemonade so much I use that. My family loved the results and now I fix this lemon version all the time.—Tracy Brousseau, Orem, Utah
