I Miss Real Lemonade

Lemonade was my favourite drink back when I lived in Texas.  Now that I've moved to England, lemonade is a completely different thing.  British lemonade is carbonated and is like Sprite.  I miss American lemonade where it has no carbonation and is made with just sugar, lemons, and water.  Luckily, one of the supermarkets here sell it (although it's expensive and not always in stock, oh, and it's in a small bottle).



(EDIT: No, I can not make my own lemonade.  I know the ingrediants, but when I make it, it's either too sweet with not enough lemons or too sour.  I miss lemonade like Minute Maid lemonade).

Thanks, I'll check it out. I've never heard of lemon powder, but I shall conduct a search next time I do my on-line shopping.


Well, I bought some of the minute maid lemonade mix off of eBay (how sad am I, haha). Lemons do get expensive to buy (and the boyfriend starts complaining, haha) so I usually get lemon juice which is probably where I go wrong.

Sonic lemonade is good! I like their Strawberry Lemonade. Over here, American lemonade is called Sicilian Lemonade. There is one restuarant here that makes the best "Sicilian" lemonade I've ever tasted. The first time I tasted it, I knew I was in love, haha.


I don't know how to make real lemonade. If you look at my previous comment, my lemonade never tastes right when I make it. It's either too sweet or not enough.

I like minute maid lemonade, and I surely won't be able to make that.

Yeah, but when I make it, it doesn't seem to taste right. I'm horrible at making it myself =(
