Start by adjusting your recipe until you sell a rather high amount of cups on sunny days. (Make sure you got enough lemons/sugar/cups/ice to make them)

And then you can change the price at which you sell your cup, how much stock you buy, etc.

Tips:

1) You can buy as many cups as you want
2) Sugar and lemons can decay, so don't overstock
2a) My magic stock number is 300 of each
3) Only buy the ice you need for the day
4) The more expensive your recipe, the more people like it
5) Don't be afraid to test new prices. See what they're willing to pay when you need money
6) Since you reset when you bankrupt, be careful not to overspend. When buying supplies, use this example: if you have $140, you can buy 140 of both lemons and sugar. This is useful only if you have stocked up on cups.
7) I can't stress the awesomeness of ice. In the recipe, a higher number counts as more ice cubes. When you purchase, it counts as a fraction just like the lemons and sugar.
7b) USE EIGHT ICE CUBES IN YOUR RECIPE! I tend to buy 6 ice cubes a day, and sell a max of 48 cups. If I buy 7, I don't sell any more, and efficiency goes down due to more expenses.
8) Play with your recipe until you find what works for you and then stick with it, and hoard it.

It's profit before daily purchases.
