A slushy blend of sweetened fresh lemon juice and ice, frozen lemonade has been a popular summer tradition in Rhode Island and Massachusetts since the early 1900s. Over the years, the thirst-quenching beverage has inspired delicious variations. Our version includes blackberries, but you could use strawberries, raspberries or blueberries for equally tasty results. Courtesy of Williams Sonoma
