  National Lemonade Day!
When is National Lemonade Day?  National Lemonade Day is always - August 20

What is National Lemonade Day?
National lemonade day is a day we honor the old time favorite drink called lemonade. On National lemonade Day, it's traditional to celebrate by mixing up your favorite flavor of your choice. Lemonade now has a broader range of flavors to choose from. You can make regular lemonade, pink lemonade, strawberry lemonade and even watermelon lemonade. All of these are cool and refreshing drinks and make great bases for coctails too. This is one beautiful drink so make some homemade lemonade and enjoy in the freshness.

Regular Lemonade
The basic lemonade recipe has been popular in the Southern United States for years! Sweet tea and lemonade are practily trade marks for the south.

U.S. lemonade is usually sold as a summer refresher. It is commonly available at fairs and festivals, often as a "lemon shakeup" with the shell of the squeezed lemon left in the cup. Lemonade was also the traditional mixer in a Tom Collins, but today it is commonly replaced by a bar mix.

UK-style lemonade and beer produce a shandy. Lemonade is also an important ingredient in the Pimm's Cup cocktail, and a popular drink mixer.

Pink lemonade:
Conventionally, pink lemonade is coloured with grenadine.
The Greeks were the first to have pink lemonade. They made this so that while the adults were having wine at celebrations, the children would also have a special treat. When the Greeks dyed the lemonade pink by adding wine, the common myth in the community was that this drink was made from pink lemons that grew in a forest that no man could enter and come out alive. They made the children believe that these magical pink lemons were brought back by a noble king.

The New York Times, however, credited Henry E. "Bunk Allen" Allott, as the inventor in his obituary:

   At 15 he ran away with a circus and obtained the lemonade concession. One day while mixing a tub of the orthodox yellow kind he dropped some red cinnamon candies in by mistake. The resulting rose-tinted mixture sold so surprisingly well that he continued to dispense his chance discovery.

Traditional Lemonade Recipe
Lemonade is a sweetened beverage made from lemons, sugar, and water. It is popular in the United States during the spring and summer, when it is generally served chilled, with ice.

In some countries, the word 'lemonade' is also used to describe any clear carbonated drink; in others, it means any fruit-flavored soda.


  Juice the lemons on a citrus reamer. Rolling the lemons on the counter with moderate pressure prior to juicing will result in more juice from each lemon. Try to keep out the seeds. If you prefer lemonade with no pulp, strain the juice to remove it.  Dissolve the sugar in the water. Heat may be helpful if using a large amount of sugar.  Combine the juice and sugar water in a pitcher. Stir well.
Chill or serve over ice cubes.

Alternative Recipe
1 cup Lemon Juice
1 cup Sugar
6 Cups of Water (2 cups warm water, 4 cups cold water)

Pour 2 cups of warm water into a pitcher and stir in sugar until it dissolves (Sugar dissolves quicker in warm water).   Pour in lemon juice, stir again, and add the 4 cups of cold water.  Chill or serve over ice cubes.

Variations

___________________________________________________________

Limeade is the same as Lemonade but it's made with limes
Limeade is a beverage similar to lemonade, but is made with lime juice or lime flavor(s) instead of those of the lemon.

A carbonated version is often made of 7up mixed with the juice of several limes. Sonic Drive-In uses Sprite instead of 7up to create its popular limeade.

Fresh Limeade Recipe

Mix lime juice, water and sugar; refrigerate until chilled.
Serve over ice in tall glasses; garnish with lime slice twists and mint.
Note: Limeade can be frozen in ice cube trays; the cubes can be used with the limeade so it will not be diluted. Also, the ice cubes can be processed in a blender or food processor to make a delicious lime slush.  (recipe from cdkitchen)

Watermelon Lemonade
The mild flavour of the watermelon blends nicely with the tart lemon juice.

6 cups watermelon
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice

Remove as many seeds as you can from the watermelon flesh. Place watermelon and water in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain liquid into a pitcher, along with sugar and lemon juice. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, then serve.
