Homemade Lemonade

Old-fashioned lemonade is favorite at summer fairs. It's also known as a Lemon Shake Up. To make it at home place 2 tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar in a large glass or drink shaker (like a martini shaker) half full of crushed ice. Now cut a lemon in two, slice each section in two or three pieces, squeeze the juice of the lemon and fill the glass with plain ice-cold water. Shake throughly, pour from shaker into glass.
