Fact of the Day: Lemonade

While lemonade is a classic drink, its name is not always the same in the English-speaking world. In the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia, lemonade usually refers to lemon-lime sodas like Sprite and 7-UP. The word for lemonade over there is usually "lemon squash".
