Lemonade doesn't sound like a beverage that takes patience to master, but hard work reaps rewards. You don't just grab the drink mix in store and mix with water, that's cheating. You get lemons, juice them, and mix with water just like God intended. It's not hard, but can be time consuming until you become familiar with the most basic kitchen tools. Literally... You juice a few lemons, mix with water, call it good. It'll blow away anything you get in store, plus, it'll teach your kids the value of a dollar when they sell the real stuff on the corner (provided the fuzz hasn't shut them down for lacking permits and stuff)

Also, when you do finally master making lemonade, you'll have no problem building those skills into other recipes like hot dog pie.
