When Life Gives You Lemons


Review by Debbie Mazo


Although it's the dog days of summer, it's still not too late to enjoy a cool, tall glass of lemonade. After all, there's nothing like ice-cold lemonade on a warm day to keep your summer spirit alive. If you like your lemonade tangy but with a little bite, you'll love When Life Gives You Lemons-a site devoted to the joys of lemonade.

When Life Gives You Lemons Hosted by Sarah Zelechoski of Maryland, this 16 year-old believes a nice, tall, cold, pulpy, smooth, sour glass of lemonade is the perfect answer for a tough day of teenage life. Whether you're a teenager or not, this shrine to lemonade is definitely worth a visit just for a brief look at the 101 reasons to drink lemonade alone. From reminding you of your childhood to providing you with Vitamins B1 and C and lots of energy, you'll no longer have to make excuses for drinking lemonade all year long.

To soothe the cravings of any lemonade addict, the site includes a collection of quick and easy lemonade recipes as well as dessert recipes with a lemonade twist. Traditionalists can sample favorites like Old Fashioned Lemonade served in a tall glass and garnished with a slice of lemon and sprig of mint. If you're looking for more exotic variations, try Strawberry Lemonade which combines puréed strawberries and club soda or Indian Lemonade spiced up with cayenne pepper.

Other highlights of the site include a ratings list of the top commercial brands of lemonade, the history of lemonade, and a lemonade game that will teach budding entrepreneurs how to set up a lemonade stand. Whether for profit or for pleasure, When Life Gives You Lemons serves it up right when it comes to lemonade.
