I’ve always loved lemonade, and in practically any form (powered or fresh). And there are options for what I call the double fruit drink. Lemonade mixed with raspberries, strawberries, limes, etc. I think the combinations can go on and on and on. But, nothing beats a Lemon Shake-up on a hot day.
I’ve noticed that some restaurants have tried to duplicate the taste, and it does probably taste the same, but there is something special about sipping through that straw on a hot summers day (not in a cool restaurant). The perfect setting would be the county fair or amusement park with a corn dog , smothered in ketchup and mustard in the other hand. The drink and the food were made for each other, in my humble opinion.
Honestly, there really isn’t anything special about water, ice, tons of granulated sugar and a handful of lemons, but to me it is heaven. Maybe it is because it conjures wonderful memories of strolling the fairgrounds with my parents (they went for the food and I for the rides). No trip was complete until I had drunk a lemon shakeup and eaten a corndog.
