Lemons are said to have been first found in North India, China and Burma, and was introduced in Persia, Arab countries, Iraq and Egypt in around 700 AD. Lemon trees were grown as ornamental trees in Mediterranean gardens. The drink we now recognize as lemonade may have origins in a mix of lemon juice and honey wine popular in Egypt some 1500 years ago.
Lemonade is the French word for their original unsweetened version combined with either still or carbonated water.Click here to know more about lemonade.
