What a lovely lemonade they make at Star Confectionery—every bit as charming and old-fashioned as the 90-year-old luncheonette-ice cream parlor. First they squeeze a lemon with a little water, then they add some crushed ice and two shots of simple syrup (sugar-water) and give it a brief whiz in the milkshake blender. Finally it gets garnished with a lemon wedge.

Next time I visit, I’m going to ask if they’ll make my lemonade with seltzer instead of water.

Star Confectionery is at 4 E. Main St., Riverhead, 631-727-9873.
