A tall cool glass of fresh squeezed lemonade is the perfect refreshing summer drink and Ted’s Montana Grill makes a great one. If you’re like me, you don’t make fresh squeezed lemonade at home very often because you don’t have enough lemons and it’s kind of a pain to squeeze them. Treat yourself on this one though because the flavor of fresh is worth the extra effort. For a special party or a picnic, serve the lemonade in a clear pitcher with lots of fresh lemon slices and it looks very festive. I’m thirsty now, how about you?
TIP: For extra juice and ease of squeeze, put the lemons in the microwave for 1 minute.
