Looking at Cooking with Mildred Swift
Frost the rims of the glassed by dipping them in lemon or orange juice, then in granulated sugar. For glamor and faster dissolving, pass a pitcher of simple syrup instead of sugar (equal parts of sugar and water, boiled 5 minutes.) Add a long curl of lemon peel (made like an apple peel) to each glass tea. Try orange and lime curls for variety. Garnish with a fresh strawberry and fresh mint. Offer lemon candy sticks for stirring and sipping.
