Lemonade was a popular beverage in Human culture, made with the juice of lemons, mixed with water and sugar, and served chilled. It could be carbonated to be a soft drink.
William T. Riker enjoyed lemonade ( TNG episode: " Hide and Q"), as did Jake Sisko ( DS9 episode: " Move Along Home"). His father, Benjamin Sisko, offered his future wife, Jennifer, a glass of lemonade when they first met at Gilgo Beach ( DS9 episode: " Emissary"; - DS9 Millennium novel: ).

"If life hands you a lemon, make lemonade." was a common
Earth saying, urging one to make the best of a bad situation. It was analogous to the Romulan saying "If the sword shatters, take its fragments to a forge." ( TOS novel: ).
