Ade is the answer to some crossword clues such as summer cooler or fruity quaff, and I been quaffing a lot lately. But no canned, bottled, or powdered products for me. I like the real thing. There’s nothing like a refreshing, frosty glass of lemonade or limeade during these dog days of summer to cool us off.

For my afternoon mini indulgence. I just squeeze some juice from a lemon or lime into the glass or pitcher, add some agave nectar usually – my new find which I heartily recommend – or some sugar to taste, stir in some water and ice - and yum. I made orangeade for the kids when they were here last week from some wonderfully juicy oranges, and they seemed to like it.

It is one of summer's pleasures.
