History

The Lemon Squash is a non-alcoholic cocktail which is always made with lemon juice, sugar, sparkling water and some fruit for decoration. It is a very thirst-quenching drink, ideal during periods of extreme heat.

For the record, the Lemon Squash recipe was published under that name for the first time in a cocktail book in the 1880s (below), I say "under that name" because similar recipes have been published under other names before.
