Ice-cold lemonade making glasses sweat on a shady porch, Paul Newman's steamy-as-the-afternoon Quick flirting with JoAnne Woodward's longing-for-love Clara in The Long, Hot Summer; Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant moaning "The Lemon Song." Squeezed lemons may refresh, but they're also hot. Make a pitcher of lemonade and get busy.
Blogger Fakeginger gives us the recipe, courtesy of Rebecca Rather's Pastry Queen cookbook, for a lemonade that is brimming with fruit-luscious watermelon and berries, and slices of lemons, oranges, and limes. And since it's Labor Day, pull up a chair under a shade tree, turn off the cell phone, wrap your hands around a glass of the cold stuff, and take a good breath of what has been a breathtaking summer.
