How To Make A Lemonade Stand
  • Table or some type of platform for performing your magic lemon smashing (could be 2 sawhorses and plywood)
  • A citrus smasher or muddler or juicer of some sort. By far – the citrus juicers are the best – PERIOD!
  • Cups with lids and straws (clear 32oz is the best and you’ll get the most profit from these)
  • Water jugs
