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: The Fall of Terok Nor).

The crew of the USS Voyager were offered lemonade and sugar cookies by the illusory inhabitants of the Caretaker's array in 2371 (VOY episode: "Caretaker").

"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: The Romulan Way).



A more tart version of lemonade popular in Somalian culture, enjoyed by Geordi La Forge and his sister, Ariana as children (TNG novel: Losing the Peace).
