It’s believed that the history of lemonade dates back to Persia, Iraq and Egypt in around 700CE with lemon being a main ingredient in a variety of local dishes. It was during this time when a simple wine was created with lemon, dates and honey which begun the concept of lemonade.
In more recent times, lemonade is the simple combination of lemon juice, sugar and water and is a tangy and delicious mixer to serve with high quality vodka such as Ketel One and ice. In several countries, lemonade has blossomed into different forms, with pink lemonade, strawberry lemonade and raspberry lemonade widely available. Here at Ketel One, we have a classic cocktail which is simple to squeeze together to celebrate Lemonade Day…
The Ketel One Citroen Dutch Lemonade is the perfect cocktail to mark the occasion. The cocktail contains just two ingredients. The blend of Ketel One Vodka, infused with the essence of four different types of lemons, and two types of limes combined with fresh lemonade, provides a clean finish for all to enjoy.
