Lemon-lime drinks, also known as lemonade in Australia and New Zealand, are common carbonated soft drinks with lemon and lime flavoring. Sprite, 7 Up, and Sierra Mist are the popular examples in the United States and elsewhere.


Lemon-lime soft drinks are typically clear and sometimes can be mistaken for carbonated water, but are usually sold in transparent green bottles to make the distinction clearer. Some brands are cloudy rather than transparent, such as Mountain Dew and Limca (India and US).

Some lemon-lime drinks are non-carbonated. Some are sold as ready to mix kits for use at home or sold premixed in standard bottles and cans, such as Kool-Aid, Minute Maid (Nimbu Pani) and 7Up Nimbooz are sold in India. In the United States and elsewhere, these are commonly referred to as lemonade or limeade.

The lemon-pop flavor is also used in many other food products, such as ice pops, lollipops, sports drinks, and jelly beans.

Lemon-lime sodas are a common home remedy for nausea and upset stomachs.[1]

Lemon-lime soda is termed "lemonade" in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. True lemonade (an uncarbonated mixture of water, sugar, and lemon juice) in the latter two countries is called "lemon squash" (although local lemon squash drinks are usually carbonated, unlike most "lemonade" drinks). In the United Kingdom, true lemonade is often called "cloudy lemonade".
