Best Lemonade - 2000
Readers' Choice: McCormick & Schmick's
Some things you just can't get year-round in other parts of the country. Take lemonade: It's a seasonal refreshment up north, and even then, it's usually made with the powdered stuff in a can. That's not the case in Houston, or at Barnaby's Cafe. Every morning they squeeze their own lemons and make the most delicious citrus beverage this side of the Mason-Dixon. A delicate balance of sweet and sour, and you've got a refreshing alternative to your average everyday soda or that other Southern concoction, iced tea. If you stand in the parking lot for just a few extra moments before going in (and let's face it, that could result in full-on heat exhaustion in Houston), they'll bring a pitcher to the table.
