Nothing says summer than a fresh cup of lemonade. This sweet and tart drink has been satisfying people of all ages all summer long. We’ve read its true origin is hard to pinpoint, but many would say that lemonade first appeared in Egypt around 1000 AD, after lemons had made their way in from China. Apparently by the mid-1600s vendors in France were the first to monopolize the beverage where it was sold from backpack tanks on the street aka the first lemonade stands if you will!
Lemons are actually considered a superfood and contain plenty of health benefits, such as Vitamin C, B6, and A, as well as, minerals and healthy compounds found in a single lemon. They also contain flavonoids, which are helpful antioxidants that can assist your body in numerous ways.
While most store-bought lemonades are high in sugar, lemonade is one of the most versatile drinks you can make from home. Our recipe calls for some fresh lemons and a touch of honey-ginger infusion.
