How about a refreshing glass of Lemonade?
Sipping a cold glass of fresh, home-made lemonade on a hot and humid summer day or even on a long, cold night in winter is delightful.
Once you have mastered the art of creating delicious lemonade, the setting up a retro-lemonade stand on your front lawn for your kids in the summer would make you the coolest parent on the block.
During my youth in Kalamaki, Athens, Greece, I became an expert in art of squeezing the juice out of lemons.

I was privileged to witness the process first hand during my trip to Colombia, South America.
Using a fruit juicer, extract the juice of 4 lemons, discard the seeds, and add the lemon juice to pitcher.
Stir to blend ingredients.
Pour a small amount into a glass to assess its potency.
(Add either more lemon juice and/or sugar to suit your taste.)
Refrigerate. Add a couple lemon slices to your pitcher of Lemonade before serving.
Garnish serving glasses with lemon slices and enjoy.
