Lemon juice is used in many recipes, both sweet and savoury, and of course you can juice limes in there too. (Margaritas, anyone?) Freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice is better than the bottle kind, whatever recipe you are making.

A Closer Look at Lemonade

Lemonade is a fascinating beverage on its own. You probably have come across many lemonade stands in your local neighbourhood. Did you know that these lemonade stands have been around for more than 135 years!

A shopkeeper in New York set up a lemonade stand outside his store in 1879 to sell lemonade to passers-by. This was a brand-new idea and had never been done before. In fact, it became so popular and drew enough of a crowd to block the sidewalk. Just imagine the crowd if he was selling lemon strawberry squares too. Or freshly baked lemon bars!

More lemonade stands popped up during that hot summer, selling the refreshing beverage for 5 cents. That was a third of a price the bars were charging. Although the first lemonade stands were set up by adult entrepreneurs, kids started the following year. This was, and still is, a great way for kids to earn money.

Today there are many varieties of lemonade. Not only different brands but also different flavours. Sparkling strawberry lemonade, Arnold Palmer… the list goes on. And spiked lemonade is great for a party! Strawberry lemonade bars play homage to this popular summer beverage, and of course you can enjoy them all throughout the year.
