Labor Day Necessity: Lemonade
The year-round warm desert climate of Phoenix turns up the heat in the summer months and sticks around through the Labor Day holiday and beyond. Refreshment is high on the list when temperatures are in the triple digits. Make sure part of that refreshment is a tall, cold glass of lemonade. We make our gourmet AZ lemonade in the cool shade of Camelback Mountain in metro Phoenix. Stop by and taste one of over 15 flavors or seek it out at a Phoenix-area grocery store to make it part of your Labor Day plans. All of our flavors are served in a mason jar, bringing back memories of past Labor Day celebrations where a refreshing sip was taken from any glass on hand.
Original AZ Lemonade
Before we had so many delicious flavors to pair with Labor Day cookout treats, we perfected the original. We started with the original lemonade everyone knows and loves, then after a lot of trial and error, we found a perfect balance of sweet and sour for a flavor no big name brand can offer. The pale-yellow color lets you know what’s inside is perfect in every way – not too sweet, not too sour, and just right for your Labor Day celebration. Served in a mason jar, you’ll enjoy every cool, refreshing, original-taste drop.
As an Arizona company, we knew we needed to make sure to spotlight Arizona flavors. Picked from the cactus with the same name, prickly pears are so unique there’s no one similar flavor to describe them every time. Some people may taste pineapple with hints of raspberry or strawberry, and others even taste things like classic bubble gum or juicy watermelon. The light pink color of our prickly pear lemonade reflects the perfect blending of Original with the vibrant pink color the prickly pear is known for. You can decide for yourself this Labor Day when you take a drink of this unique flavor that blends Arizona and lemonade in the same jar. No matter what your taste buds think, you’ll take in the rich taste and delicate aroma the unique fruit is known for.
Visit a more tropical environment without leaving the desert climate of Phoenix. Slice into a fresh mango and find the dark yellow color of our mango flavor. Pair the flavor with other tropical bites, or the delicious flavors of a Labor Day bar-b-que. Starting with Original lemonade like we always do, we explored the tropical flavor of this colorful fruit and found the perfect mix of Original lemonade’s sweet and sour, along with the addition of the tropical juices of mango for a unique blend that tickles the taste buds. Make sure to have the flavor on hand this Labor Day for a tropical kick to the festivities.
Transport yourself to long-past summers of picking strawberries. You filled your basket full of juicy, strawberry flavor and headed home for treats like strawberry shortcakes, berries and ice cream, and other summer delights. If you’re looking to add the sweet and tangy taste to your glass of a perfect Labor Day drink, we have just what you’re looking for. Whether it’s part of the snack after a win on the Little League field, or an option at the Labor Day family cookout, the added kick of strawberry will have everyone reaching for the jar. Bright red in color, you can be sure it’s packed full of strawberry flavor that doesn’t end. It’s like tasting summer all year!
Build another bridge to Labor Day celebrations of the past. Picnic lunches included homemade sandwiches, potato chips, watermelon, and maybe even some lemonade! Remember biting into a big slice of juicy watermelon, then munching all the way down to the rind to savor every bit of flavor. You probably didn’t take a big drink of lemonade right after, especially if you think watermelon and lemonade don’t mix. We started with our original lemonade, then found the best way to blend lemonade and watermelon flavors into a single flavor that brings the two summer fruits together in one jar. Just a shade or two darker than prickly pear, it stands out and reflects the rich flavor and dark red of fresh watermelon. Don’t worry – there aren’t any watermelon seeds to get in the way of these refreshing flavors.
Keep your eyes peeled for newcomers like blackberry, blueberry, kiwi, passion fruit, raspberry, and others. As always, we start with our Original AZ lemonade, then pack in the fun, new flavor.
