Real Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Fresh Squeezed tastes better

On a hot day, while strolling around the village of Elora, Ontario, what could be more refreshing than a tall cold glass of Lemonade?

At Sweet Distractions we offer only the purest, a freshest tasting lemonade you will find - because our lemonade is made right in store with simple ingredients: Lemons - hand squeezed the old fashioned way, simple syrup, and water. There is nothing artificial and definitely no preservatives in our Lemonade. 
When you taste our lemonade - you will discover the difference quality and freshness makes. 

You will always find pieces of fresh lemon in your glass -because we don't filter or process the lemonade-Just Fresh Squeeze lemons the old fashioned way. 

Others may have Lemonade - but Fresh Squeezed tastes better.
