What a story
Did you know that the term “lemonade” originated in 17th-century France? It comes from the word “limon,” which means lemon in French. Today, lemonade is a popular and refreshing drink enjoyed around the world.
In fact, lemonade has a fascinating history. It was once known as “pop” because it was sold in bottles with a marble in the neck. When you pushed the marble down, it would pop and release the carbonation, making the drink fizzy and refreshing. Today, most lemonade is still carbonated, but you can also find still varieties that are equally delicious.
Industrial lemonade is generally very sweet
Are you tired of store-bought lemonade that’s full of colourants, stabilizers, and preservatives? Not to mention the excessive amount of sugar that most supermarket lemonades contain. In fact, just one litre of orange soft drink can contain up to 23 cubes of sugar, which exceeds the World Health Organization’s recommended daily sugar intake of 25 grams.
Fortunately, making your own lemonade at home is easy and healthier. By using fresh lemons and natural sweeteners, you can avoid unnecessary additives and control the amount of sugar in your drink. Plus, it’s a great way to experiment with different flavours and create your own unique blend.
To make your own lemonade, start by juicing fresh lemons and mixing the juice with water and your preferred sweetener (such as honey or agave syrup). You can also add some extra flavour by infusing the lemonade with fresh herbs or fruits, like basil or strawberries.
By making your own lemonade, not only will you have a healthier and tastier drink, but you’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what’s in it. So why not try your hand at making homemade lemonade today and enjoy a refreshing and all-natural drink that’s good for you!
Creating unique Home-Made Lemonades with various Fruits and Herbs
Experimenting with Different Fruits and Herbs to Enhance Your Lemonade
When it comes to making lemonade, many people think of using classic citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges. However, the possibilities are endless! By using different fruits such as berries or those with stones or pips, you can create unique and flavorful homemade lemonades. While some fruits will require juicing, others can be pureed in a blender.
Fruit-based lemonades are already delicious, but adding herbs such as rosemary, mint, or thyme can take your drink to the next level. Not only do herbs enhance the appearance of your lemonade, but they also add an extra layer of flavor. And for those who are curious about incorporating vegetables into their drinks, look no further than cucumber! Cucumber is a popular addition to many beverages due to its refreshing and crisp taste. So why not get creative with your homemade lemonades and try out different fruits, herbs, and even vegetables to make your perfect drink?
