Frog lemonade recipe
Mother has just brought me a glass of frog lemonade. You never heard of it? Probably not — it’s a southern drink that is perfectly delicious, and I know you’ll bless me one of these hot days if I give you the recipe.
Take a large punch bowl, and put in a pound of sugar three quarts of water, the juice of two dozen lemons, and one of pineapple, and add two bottles of seltzer water. Mix all well. Add a dozen or so ripe strawberries or cherries and thin slices of pineapple and lemon. If not sweet enough, add more sugar.
When thoroughly mixed, add a large square of ice and let the mixture get very before serving. Fill the glasses one quarter full of crushed ice and fill up with the lemonade, adding with it some of the fruit. This is a very generous quantity, but the proportions could be easily reduced.
