Best Restaurant Lemonade Hunt

Modern_South May 31, 2011 07:26 AM

On the hunt for the best glass of lemonade in South Florida. Stand-outs, twisted additions or unusual preparations are a plus... alcoholic or non. (I am guessing that a good glass of ANYTHING in Miami is gonna have booze in it. ;)

    Bamboo Fire in Delray has the best homemade lemonade I have ever had. I asked what they added to it besides lemons, water, and sugar but they wouldn't give it up. That's only fair I guess. There is no soda water or alcohol in it. Someone suggested it might be some type of almond flavor but I am unsure.I did find a Caribbean lemonade recipe that added vanilla essence and angostura bitters.

      if you catch the Nacho Bizness truck that roams around Broward County, try their "Chronic Lemonade", it's a homemade ginger lemonade. it's pretty damn good.

        The lemonade w/ verbena @ Peacock Garden is really good too.

            If you plan on driving to Bamboo Fire, call them to verify their summer hours.
