Brown lemonade

Brown lemonade

Brown lemonade is a lemonade sold in Northern Ireland alongside the more recognisable "white lemonade"

There is very little difference in taste between the two except that brown colouring is used to alter its appearance.

Legend has it that in the Harland and Wolff shipyards, employees were not allowed to drink alcohol on their lunch breaks. The shipbuilders were not keen on drinking soft drinks because they thought it to make them feminine and as a result brown lemonade was created as it could be drunk from a pint glass and look like a pint of ale.fact|date=February 2008

The most common brands of Brown Lemonade in Northern Ireland are Cantrell & Cochrane (C&C) and Maine.
