HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
It is believed that lemonade was originally created by the medieval Egyptians over 1500 years ago. Years later, in 1873, the popular pink version was, according to legend, accidentally invented at a circus stand in New Jersey. One of the female bareback riders hung her red tights to dry precariously close to Billie Griffith’s brewing batch of lemonade. A strong wind blew the tights into the lemonade and tinted it pink. With crowds already arriving, Billie was forced to serve his pink-tinted lemonade. (Source: Yumsugar)
