Lemon juice

Lemonade or lemon juice is a sweetened lemon-flavored beverage. There are kinds of lemonade found everywhere in the world. It is usually a homemade beverage using lemon juice, water, and a sweetener such as cane sugar, simple syrup, or honey.

Despite the distinctions between the drinks, each is known simply as "lemonade" in countries where it is dominant. The suffix "-ade" may also be applied to other comparable drinks made with different fruits, such as limeade, orangeade, or cherryade.

While carbonated water was invented in 1767, the first reference found to carbonated lemonade was in 1833 when the drink was sold in British refreshment stalls. R. White's Lemonade has been sold in the UK since 1845.

The true origin of lemons is not entirely known. They are thought to have originated in north-western India. It is known that lemons were introduced to southern Italy around 200 AD and have been cultivated in Egypt and Iran since 700 AD.

He has also contributed several other classics to the boozy realm, including the White Lady and the Old Pal, so drinkers are forever in his debt. Most people name this cocktail Between the Sheets, though you may hear it referred to as a Maiden's Prayer (when made with gin instead of rum) as well. By either name, it's a cool drink in which rum and brandy get together for some fun. If you enjoy the notorious Sidecar, be sure to give this one a try. The brandy and rum blend is often seen in classics such as the Boston Sidecar and Embassy cocktails. The Between the Sheets is a cocktail consisting of white rum, cognac, triple sec, and lemon juice.
