in reply to Worst Nodes and Making Lemonade

I want to thank Anomynous Monk for mentioning me, but I still feel that I'm missing out on the lemonade information that the title of this thread implies. There are bait and switch laws, you know. To prevent a messy legal situation, I'll add my own lemonade content.

For a refreshing summertime treat, please try the following lemonade recipe, stolen from another website:

Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed from 8 large lemons (1-1/2 cups)
1/2 cup of sugar, granulated - to taste
5 cups cold well water
1 large lemon, cut into small wedges or thin cartwheel slices
Ice cubes.

In a large pitcher, combine the freshly squeezed lemon juice, granulated sugar and 2 cups of cold water; stir briskly to dissolve the sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and stir briskly again.

    Mea maxima culpa, Wassercrats, but I prefer limeade to lemonade and I got my recipie from an O'Reilly book. :-P

    For those of you playing along at home, the recipie is:

    8 cups Filtered Water teaspoon Honey to taste Persian Lime Juice

    I have to admit that I elided my comment that suggested that your worst node was not nearly as bad as this node was good. Even though the two have nearly the same absolute value. Frankly, you don't come anywhere close to sucking as hard as several other monks rule.

    Update: If you really want a good lime based drink, try this.


    A paranom of virtue.

    It's in reference to the expression: using the lemons you're handed (sour and unpleasant) to make lemonade (delightful and refreshing). The recipe is nice, though. Taken from a public domain site one hopes.
