NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY – August 20

National Lemonade Day - August 20

NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY

In the midst of a hot summer day, nothing is more refreshing than a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade!  Annually celebrated during the summer month of August on the 20th, it is National  Lemonade Day.

Research shows that the earliest mention of lemonade stems from 10th century Egypt.  Trade in lemon juice was quite common and the people liked to drink the lemon juice with sugar added.

Today, lemonade is made from fresh fruit, reconstituted from frozen juice, dry powder or liquid concentrate and it is colored in a variety of shades.  Usually served in a tall glass with ice, it is also sometimes served frozen into a slush or Popsicle-type dessert.  There are artificially sweetened and artificially flavored lemonade versions that have become popular as well.  Another popular version is the artificially flavored alcoholic lemonade drinks.
