The Victorian Lemonade.

With the Olympics well underway, we still wish we could be in London to celebrate the games. Fortunately, Michael Jordan's The Steak Houses (located in New York City, Chicago, and Connecticut) is offering its own take on English-style cocktails. (After all, Michael Jordan was an Olympian, too!) The Victorian Lemonade is from the Golden Age of cocktails, and is a twist on the traditional mint julep. As the Brits might say, cheers!

Lemonade Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemonade Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
