Have a little squeeze with me......

Squeeze it and they will come, lemons that is. There are three places in Houston that have really great lemonade: Paulie's, Giocomo's and Treebeards. All three uniquely different and fresh, who could ask for anything more. What they all have in common is their tartness; just enough sugar to take the edge off the lemon so it doesn't peel your tongue off, but enough to leave you with a very happy pucker.

Try it, you'll like it.....
   Paulie's lemonade is made with ginger and sits in a large glass dispenser toward the back of the restaurant. The ginger adds a mild zing to an already perfect lemonade. I love it. I think about it, crave it.
    Giocomo's lemonade is made fresh for you while you wait. Perfect every time I've had it. I sip it, then slurp it, oh my.
   Treebeards lemonade has pulp and lots of it. It adds a texture to the liquid. The lemonade sits at the end of the serving line in a big clear container with pulp sloshed up against its walls.  Oh, I go weak in the knees just thinking about it.

Hey and guess what, besides great lemonade, they all have really great food!!!! More on that later.

"I believe if life gives you lemon, you should make lemonade.....and try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party." Ron White
