The History of Lemonade:
Lemonade refers to an uncarbonated mixture of lemon juice, sugar and water.
Lemonade was invented in 1630 in Paris.
Despite its Parisian roots, lemonade in Europe is quite different nowadays – it’s carbonated, meaning it is carbonated sweet lemon flavored soft drink.
Lemonade is called “lemonade” and not “lemon juice” like “orange juice”; because it is a mixture of lemon juice, sugar and water, which is why it’s called “lemonade.” Orange juice and apple juice mixed with water and sugar could be called orangeade.
Lemons are originally from northern India. The name means “golden apple”.
Lemon trees were grown as ornamental trees in Mediterranean gardens. Lemonade is believed to have been invented in Egypt over 1,500 years ago. Lemonade originally started as a lemon and honey wine.
About one fourth of the world’s lemons are grown in the United States, mostly in California. A lemon tree may bear as many as 3,000 lemons annually.
The Term Lemonade Has Other Meanings:
“If life give you lemons, make lemonade” – a popular quote by Dale Carnegie, meaning one should make the best of bad situations.
“Depression lemonade” refers to the practice of asking for a glass of water with lemon at a restaurant, then squeezing lemon into the water and mixing in sugar packets to make free lemonade.
“I’ve got a lemon” – the lemon law.
