Last Saturday, CityCentre hosted 50 stands of eager Lemonade Day participants all vying for the title Best Tasting lemonade in all of Houston.
It was left up to 15 judges from chefs to CEOs to make the call. And it was no easy job. They spent hours carefully tasting everyone’s recipes, talking to the kids about their recipes and inspirations. There was blueberry, strawberry, cucumber, basil, cinnamon, and even lemongrass; some opted for stevia, while others topped with whipped cream. There was even a Gatorade lemonade catering to the runners with Conn’s Green Run. After hours of judging and lots of tasting, they tallied the numbers and announced the winners.
So who took home the title?
