The History of Lemonade

As the dog days of summer arrive, thoughts turn to a nice, tall glass of lemonade. With this marvelous beverage in mind, I thought it made sense to share this web page with visitors.

Is it possible that lemonade can be traced as far back as the 10th Century? According to food writer Clifford Wright, the answer is "yes."

Speaking of lemonade, I will be heading to Chicago next month, and I will have to find time to visit this eatery on the city's South Side that advertises "authentic Chicago Italian lemonade."

I have no clue exactly what Italian lemonade is, and whether Italian lemonade in Chicago is different from what others call Italian lemonade. But I would like to find out.
