If summer had an official mascot it would be a tossup between fireflies, sprinklers, hotdogs, and lemonade. This version of the latter is rendered smoky-sweet with the juice of grilled lemons and limes and toasted simple syrup, which has a mild caramel flavor that does a lot to complement the grilled fruit. For a boozy version, tip an ounce or two of rum, tequila, vodka, or gin into the pitcher.
