Full Answer

Pink lemonade first appeared in the United States in the 1800s, and it was often sold at carnivals, circuses and New York City street stands. Some claim it was invented by Pete Conklin, a man who was selling regular lemonade at a circus when he ran out of water and turned to leftover water that had just been used to wash pink stockings to make a batch of lemonade. The resulting pink lemonade sold more quickly than regular lemonade. Others claim it was invented when Henry Allott, a saloon keeper, inadvertently dropped a box of cinnamon candy into a batch of regular lemonade; again, the resulting pink lemonade also sold more quickly than the regular kind. Either way, a new recipe was born. Pink lemonade can be made by bringing granulated sugar and water to a boil over high heat to make a syrup, which is then chilled. Lemon juice, sugar and cranberry juice are then added to the syrup to create the drink.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between homo and whole milk?

    A:

    Homogenized milk is processed to break down the fat so that the milk is more consistent, whereas whole (or raw) milk has not gone through this process, resulting in solids rising to the surface over time. The process is done to make milk more enjoyable to drink for most people, and it is typically a feature of milk sold in supermarkets. The phrase "whole milk" in this case refers to raw, unprocessed milk, rather than the more common usage which refers to the milk's fat content.
