The Daily Drink: Italian-Style Corn

Few foods say summer like corn on the cob. And few drinks go along with corn on  the cob — or summer! — like lemonade. It’s a perfect combo because corn is sweet and lemonade is, of course, sour.

Here’s a refresher on perfect lemonade: start with 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1 cup lemon juice, and 3 to 4 cups water (to dilute the mix). Heat 1 cup of water and the sugar until the sugar is dissolved completely, then add it to the cup of lemon juice and add as much of the 3-4 remaining cups of water to suit your taste.  Chill. Serve with lemon slices as garnish.
