Shots! Lemonade

For National Lemonade Day, Mike guides you on a century-spanning tour through the origins of this simple, delicious beverage. From its origins in Egypt and China to the cafes of 17th century Paris, lemonade has been a phenomenon all over the world. Also discussed: a Victorian-era recipe for lemonade, where pink lemonade originated, what makes an “ade,” and the correct percentage of juice in a homemade lemonade.

Mike is also joined by his daughter for the first time on the show, as she details her passion for lemonade and methods for a “rainbow unicorn lemonade.” She also details the perfect food pairing for lemonade: hot dog tacos.


Order Mike’s new book Barantined: Recipes, Tips, and Stories To Enjoy At Home; stories from a range of bartenders and sommeliers on how they survived the pandemic and how you can upgrade your home bar setup.
