This is a British cousin of American lemonade. Makes an excellent mixer for gin, vodka, and tequila. Personally, I like it mixed with tonic water or soda water and poured over crushed ice on a hot summer day.

I am so happy to find this!! I haven't made it yet and will add stars when I do, but my favorite soda from childhood was Schwepp's Bitter Lemon, which was difficult to find then and impossible now. I should have known that Miller would have had a solution for me, clever guy that he was.

Great drink, you can buy it in Waitrose for about 50p a bottle... but making it's much more fun!
