"Have you sent to the apothecary for sufficient quantity of cream of tartar to make lemonade? You know I die if I have not everything in the highest style."

Colman (The Elder), Man and Wife.

Lemonade

Squeeze the juice of one lemon over two table-spoonfuls of sugar, remove the seeds and add one cup of boiling water. Cover until cool, then strain. Chill thoroughly, and serve with a slice of lemon or orange in a tall thin glass.

Quick Lemonade

Take the juice of two lemons and pour over four tablespoonfuls of sugar. When the sugar is thoroughly dissolved add one quart of water and cracked ice.

Wash and peel three lemons very thin and put the peelings in a jug with four tablespoonfuls of sugar. Pour over them one quart of boiling water, and when cool add to the strained juice of the lemons.

Holiday Lemonade

Add a little currant or raspberry juice to plain lemonade, and serve with pieces of pineapple and banana.

Grape Lemonade No. 1

Mix one fourth glass of grape juice with a glass of plain lemonade, and serve with cracked ice.

Grape Lemonade No. 2

Pour enough ice-cold lemonade into a glass to nearly fill it, and add very carefully grape juice to fill the glass.

Spiced Lemonade

Put one half teaspoonful of whole allspice, one half teaspoonful of whole cloves, and a small piece of stick cinnamon in a quart of cold water, and let come to a boil. Strain, and chill. Mix this with a lemonade made of the juice of four lemons, four tablespoonfuls of sugar, and a quart of water. Serve with cracked ice and lemon slices decorated with whole cloves.

Hot Lemonade
