Lemonade is so associated with relaxation and family fun that we sometimes forget it is the best of everyday beverages. But Fred Thompson is here to remind us with 50 delicious lemonades that range from simple to sophisticated. These imaginative recipes will take you beyond the artificial, reconstituted world of commercial lemonade and back to the kitchen to make fresh-from-scratch thirst-quenchers. There really is no substitute for the real thing.

Review:

When looking through Lemonade, one might wonder if an entire book devoted to the subject is completely necessary, but give author Fred Thompson credit for some deliciously inventive recipes that go beyond lemons to include strawberries, rhubarb, mangoes, spearmint leaves, maple syrup, ginger, and other fresh ingredients. Making this quintessential summertime drink from scratch "has become the victim of our ever-quickening pace," Thompson says, and he combats that trend with creative concoctions like 57th Street Blueberry Lemonade, Tailgate Spiced Cranberry Lemonade, and his grandmother's Wooden Tub Lemonade, which he remembers from his childhood. ("It was the elixir of the gods.") With tips on buying, storing, and squeezing lemons, preferred serving methods, and a section of mixed alcoholic drinks, Lemonade should encourage readers to get out the juicer and stay away from the powdered "belly wash" on the supermarket shelf. --Andy Boynton

About the Author:

Fred Thompson is a writer and food stylist who divides his time between Raleigh, North Carolina, and New York City. His career has taken him to the North, but Thompson remains true to his Southern roots, holding fast to his accent and love of all things Southern—especially food. Thompson trained at the Culinary Institute of America and became involved in print and television advertising before starting his own catering business in Raleigh, which he ran from 1988 to 1994. Today, Thompson works as a freelance food stylist, cooking instructor, and food, wine, and travel writer, and runs his own product- and recipe-development business. Thompson has written several cookbooks, including Iced Tea, Lemonade, Crazy for Crab, Barbecue Nation, and Hot Chocolate. Thompson publishes Edible Piedmont magazine, which focuses on food in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, with his wife, Belinda Ellis, who serves as the magazine’s editor. He has been featured on NPR, and is a spokesperson for Lipton Cold Brew. Thompson writes “The Weekend Gourmet,” a bi-weekly column in The Raleigh News & Observer. His work has appeared in Family Circle, Wine & Spirits, Fine Cooking, and Every Day with Rachael Ray. Thompson is also a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and the Southern Foodways Alliance.
