Lemonade is a favorite summertime beverage. Popular culture - including the iconic Peanuts cartoons - often features children selling lemonade from roadside lemonade stands.
Different types of lemonade are common in different cultures. In North and South America, "cloudy" or "traditional lemonade" is a homemade recipe of lemon juice, water, and sugar.
In Australia and Britain, "clear lemonade," a carbonated beverage, is more common.
In Asia, traditional lemonades often include such ingredients as salt, spices, ginger, grated fruit, and mint leaves.

Other "ades" are made from fruits such as limes, oranges, and cherries.
Lemonade has actually been around for a very long time. Both lemons and sugarcane are native to India, and beverages of sweetened lemon water have been consumed there since time immemorial.
The first written account of lemonade dates from the year AD 1,000 in Egypt. By 1676, lemonade had become big business in Paris, France, where vendors dispensed the drink into cups from tanks they carried on their backs.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Lemonade
Lemonade Drawing - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing two straight vertical lines. The lines should be parallel to one another, forming the sides of the glass.

2. Connect the lines at the bottom using a curved line, and at the top using a flattened oval. This completes the outline of the glass.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 3
3. Draw a pair of narrowly spaced straight lines, parallel to one another, passing through the oval and into the glass. At the top of the lines, above the oval, draw two more straight lines connected to the first. These should also be parallel to one another, and connected to the first set of lines at a diagonal angle. Connect the lines at the end using a small oval. This forms a bendable straw. Then, draw curved lines along the top of the glass, just below the oval, to add detail.

4. Draw a rectangle with rounded corners inside the glass. Draw a curved line from one corner to the other along its top side. This forms the liquid held inside the glass.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 5
5. Draw two squares with rounded corners inside the liquid. Use curved lines to add texture to two sides of each square. These are the ice cubes that keep the lemonade cold.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 6
6. Draw two more squares with rounded corners, and detail the edges of each with curved lines. These form additional ice cubes.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 7
7. Just below the top of the liquid, draw a short horizontal line. From this line, extend a pair of straight, parallel lines, passing behind ice cubes as necessary and keeping the same diagonal slant as the upper portion of the straw. Connect the lines at the bottom, completing the straw. Then, detail the liquid by drawing horizontal curved lines across the glass.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 8
8. Next, draw a lemon perched on the edge of the glass. Extend straight lines outward from the sides of the glass, and connect them using a curved line, forming a half circle shape.
Lemonade Drawing - Step 9
9. Detail the lemon. Draw triangles with rounded points within the slice to indicate the sections, called supremes. Use two lines to outline the portion of the lemon that can be seen through the glass.
