Lemonade is a refreshing beverage typically made from lemon juice, water, and sugar. It is known for its bright, tangy flavor which comes from the lemons—a citrus fruit rich in vitamin C. The basic recipe involves mixing freshly squeezed lemon juice with water and sugar to taste, creating a balance of sweetness and tartness.

Lemonade can vary in sweetness and tartness based on the amount of each ingredient used. It is often served chilled or over ice, making it especially popular during warm weather as a thirst-quenching drink. There are also numerous variations of lemonade that include ingredients like mint, ginger, and berries, as well as sparkling versions that use carbonated water instead of still water.

Beyond its classic homemade form, lemonade is also commercially available in bottled and powdered forms, and it’s frequently sold at festivals, fairs, and outdoor markets. It’s not only enjoyed for its flavor but also often associated with summertime, outdoor activities, and a sense of nostalgic simplicity.
