LEMONADE

As lemons and sugarcane are native to India, it is safe to assume the Indians first consumed a type of lemonade called Nimbu Pani, meaning lemon water, literally. Another name for this beverage is Shikanjvi.

The earliest written evidence of lemonade has been found in Egypt, dated to around AD 1000, It is believed that the fruit was introduced from Asia around AD 700. Here, a wine made with lemons, dates, and honey was enjoyed by peasants, and bottles of lemon juice with sugar, known as qatarmizat were imported and consumed locally.

In 1676, a company known as Compagnie de Limonadiers was founded in Paris. Having been granted monopoly rights to sell lemonade, vendors roamed the streets serving the drink in cups from tanks on their backs.

The first reference found to a carbonated lemonade was in 1833

So now you know.

Who knew lemonade had such a rich history. A very refreshing photo!
Chris: She appeared for one day then nothing, so I'm glad I was able to take the shot

Thank you for that educational interlude, Chris...when you visit I can get you a guest gig at the local school...
Chris: I could get Billy Boy to write a lemonade song for the kiddos to sing..
I didn't see much beyond the cute girl...
Chris: Well there's a bus out there Larry

Je ne savais pas du tout d'où venait la limonade.
Chris: I didn't before this either Martine

I wonder if this lovely girl also knows this information wink...
Thank you for the education and in Dutch we have a general name for drinks with no alcohol 'limonade'... (the 'A' pronounced as the 'A' in 'after'...
Chris: I shall remember that Astrid: thank you
A lemonade bar, then, for the aficionados?! How fun.
Chris: She was there for one day only Ginnie

We know the word 'Limonade', shortly called Limo, originally only water with lemon, without any alcohol. I like the image with all the lemons and the charming girl. Thanks for the education. Lemonade is very healthy because of its high Vitamin C content.
Chris: Yes it is just that Philine. I was charmed by her yellow smartphone too
Well fancy that
Chris: Life is full of surprises, some large (Trump/Brixit,) some small (a dusting of snow on the hills over Bath this morning)

I like the way her phone is colour-co-ordinated with the lemons. I wonder if during the strawberry season she gets a phone in a different colour? The clear carbonated fizz called lemonade is nothing like the stuff that this dear lady seems to be selling. Do you get a glass?
Chris: I didn't get a glass but as you can see I did get a pose
Interesting stuff, real lemonade is so delicious.
Chris: It certainly is Martin

A summery picture on this grey November day.
Chris: Glad to oblige Anne
This is the best way to have lemonade - fresh squeezed with the amount of sugar to ones's personal taste. I abhor the idea of artificial lemonade which is popular.
Chris: artificial = no good
How strange she was only there on the one occasion, perhaps the good people of Bath didn't enjoy her lemonade.
Chris: Or she found a better pitch perhaps?

With a smile like that, she is obviously not partaking in lemoning.
Chris: Err..no she isn't Louis

I remember this lady and her lemons from the summer and wondered when she would make an appearance. Fine cheery shot Chris, makes me wish I had tried some.
Chris: I hope she makes a re-appearance next year too Mike
Does she capture all her customers on the phone?
Chris: I hope not Tom
my mouth is watering from this wonderful display of fresh lemons Chris....petersmile
Chris: I'm glad to hear that Peter
