A French invention, probably during the 17th century. Certainly by the beginning of the 18th century it was being prepared and bottled to keep, with the addition of sulphur to preserve it. English consumers were inclined to add an equal measure of white wine to their lemonade, to make it more interesting. For a recipe, see our Recipe Section.
