Summertime and Lemonade

My mother had a glass pitch similar to this one which she used only for fresh squeezed lemonade. It was freshly squeezed too. I can attest to that as I helped squeeze those lemons early in the morning before the day got hot. The pitch I remember had a blue sailboat painted on the side. When you saw that pitch out at our house it meant only one thing, summertime refreshment.

What is it about a pitcher of lemonade that is so appealing? What is it about the drink that quenches our thirst? The color yellow, the smell of citrus, the sight of water condensing on the smooth surface, the feel of an ice cold glass... then the sweet, sour taste... ahhhhhh!

Currently the air temperature is 96° F.
