I found the recipe for Bill's Lemonade in the archives posted by 6star. What size serving cup is used in that recipe..... anyone know? Bill’s World Famous Lemonade
Perhaps you would like to know how "Bill's World Famous Lemonade", who has been doing lemonade shake-ups for most of the 60 years that the Heart of Illinois Fair has been in existence, makes them (as near as I can remember). There are many people that go out to the Fair just to get his shake-ups!
Equipment: several large (8"-9" tall?) heavy-duty clear plastic cups, pestle (stomper) large enough to reach the bottom of the plastic cups, 1/4 cup scoop (for sugar), 1 cup scoop (for ice), knife for cutting lemons, drink serving cups that fit tightly on the plastic shaker cups.
Ingredients for each shake-up: 1/2 fresh lemon, cut in 4 pieces, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 cup ice chunks, about 1/2 cup water plus water to fill serving cup.
Procedure: Ahead of time, in each of the plastic shaker cups put 1/4 cup sugar topped with 4 lemon pieces. When the shake-up is ordered, stomp lemon pieces into the sugar with the pestle, add about a 1/2 cup water and 1 cup ice. Top shaker cup with serving cup tightly and shake vigorously about 10 shakes. Set down on counter with serving cup down. Remove shaker cup. Finish filling serving cup with water. Hand to customer.
