The Secrets of Cebu’s best and original Lemonade

Who wouldn’t want a cup of lemonade?

It goes with every meal and every food. We have lemonade for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and lemonade on dates, during happy hours, and even on a late-night cup.

A lemonade drink has become a staple in our lives that we can’t even begin to imagine not having our go-to lemonade stands. But did you know that the original lemonade stand came to Cebu in 2015?

The Lemon Co. was brought to the Philippines by a couple from the United States who were big fans of lemonade stands there and seized the opportunity to set up the first-ever lemonade stand in Metro Ayala Supermarket in Cebu.

They served “Love and Happiness in a cup” and The Lemon Co.’s taste was embraced by the Cebuanos with open arms and even got recognized as “Sunstar Best of Cebu 2018- Best Lemonade” and has held that title for three consecutive years.

Since then, they have gone out to several Cebu malls and began branching out, and VisMin now has over 40 branches to cater to every lemonade lover.

Fresh Natural and Flavorful Lemonade

The thing that sets The Lemon Co. apart is that it gives you the full lemonade experience. Their refreshing drinks are 100% hand-pressed drinks from freshly squeezed lemons. They are all-natural without using powders and The Lemon Co.’s ingredients are sourced locally in support of Cebu’s farmers.

These freshly made lemonades come in various flavors as well to make them more exciting.

  • Old-Fashioned Lemonade
  • Mango Lemonade
  • Cucumber Lemonade
  • Lemongrass Lemonade
  • Ginger Lemonade
  • Strawberry Lemonade
  • Watermelon Lemonade
  • Yakult® Lemonade
  • Orange Lemonade

These flavors can be taken to the next level with some add-ons and substitutes like chia seeds, hot lemonade, honey, and stevia, and can even have your choice of sweetness level.

Lemon Co. Carts and Pastry

Now, you can get a cup of tasty lemonade for yourself and your friends on the stands but how about when you are throwing a lemonade party? Well, no worries, The Lemon Co. have got your back as they are offering Lemonade Carts for parties and events.

Some exciting news for all of us is that they are about to launch journal and pastry products soon.
