Terminology

The French word limonade, which originally referred to a lemon-flavoured drink, has since come to mean "soft drink," regardless of flavour, in many languages.


In the UK, the suffix 'ade' means a carbonated sweet soft drink; hence limeade, orangeade, cherryade, etc.


American-style lemonade exists in the UK as a 'homemade' drink (also called lemonade or "lemon crush"), but is only rarely sold commercially under that name. A carbonated version is commonly sold commercially as 'cloudy' or 'traditional' lemonade. There are also similar uncarbonated products, lemon squash and lemon barley water, both of which are usually sold as a syrup which is diluted to taste. A bottle of squash Squash (sometimes called cordial; however, see the definitions below) is a highly-sweetened (and often fruit-based) concentrate, which is mixed with a liquid, most commonly water, before drinking. ... Barley water, usually flavoured with lemon or other fruit, is a popular soft drink in England. ...


In Ireland, lemonade refers to the carbonated, lemon-flavored soft drink[clarify] but is further sub-divided into white lemonade and red lemonade. White lemonade equates to the colourless fizzy lemonade common in many countries, while red lemonade is particular to Ireland. Red lemonade differs slightly in taste from white lemonade and is either drunk neat or as part of a whiskey mixer. Red lemonade is a popular soft drink in Ireland. ... Whisky (or whiskey) is an alcoholic beverage distilled from grain, often including malt, which has then been aged in wooden barrels. ...


In Vietnam, it is called nước chanh, a mix of water, lime or lemon juice, sugar, salt, and is usually not carbonated.

Uses

U.S. lemonade is usually sold as a summer refresher. It is commonly available at fairs and festivals, often as a "lemon shakeup" with the shell of the squeezed lemon left in the cup.[3] Lemonade was also the traditional mixer in a Tom Collins, but today it is commonly replaced by a bar mix.
