Every kid has had a lemonade stand. It's a child's first glimpse at responsibility and making a living, but the lemonade in this video isn't your typical lemonade stand variety. This is more like a slushy than a drink. This is a great summertime treat your guests will love, but remind them to drink it slowly to avoid that inevitable "cold headache." John Verlinden of Mucho Gusto shares a favorite pitcher-style drink with plenty to go around. Fresh-squeezed lemon juice is the star with just a few simple ingredients added to make an ice-cold refreshing beverage to serve all, from small to tall.

HOW-TO:

1. Squeeze the juice from 4 lemons and add into a blender
2. To the blender at the lemon rind, sugar and water and fill the blender with ice
