We're getting one last taste of summer this week in Chicago, so I wanted to make lemonade one more time this year. A few months ago at The Randolph Street Market, I encountered an adorable food stand, Antique Kitchen Catering. They take every detail into account in their presentation. I love the old Coca Cola crate, the red gingham and the candy-striped string.
Their menu was completely vegetarian, with the ability to veganize several of the dishes. Note: not all of their menus are vegetarian.

The Cucumber Lemonade was so refreshing and a great combination. I found a similar recipe here. Other great variations include Watermelon Lemonade, Blueberry Lemonade + Peach Lemonade. You can find paper straws like the ones shown here on Etsy.
On another lemonade note, Organic Avenue in NYC makes my all time favorite version, Ginger Lemonade, with lemons, limes, ginger, coconut nectar and Himalayan salt.

Lots of great ones on the link above through Etsy. Not sure if they ship internationally, but I'd be happy to send them to you :)
