Get ready to enjoy a sweet, citrus ice-cold summer drink that we all know and love, it’s time for National Lemonade Day, August 20. We’ve got the best spots in Birmingham to try both the classic drink and all the other innovative twists.

1. Post Office Pies—Lemonade

The standard lemonade at Post Office Pies is already incredible on its own, but what’s unique about the drink here is that you can customize it with five different flavors besides the classic. Cherry, blueberry, strawberry, rosemary and hibiscus-lavendar are all available flavors that you can sip while washing down your wood-fired pizza at Post Office.

We recommend coming back to try every flavor since its kind of hard to choose, but for National Lemonade Day try the rosemary. It’s sweet, slightly herbal flavor doesn’t disappoint

Try a taste of summer with the strawberry lemonade pop at Steel City Pops. It’s a perfect way to cool down, cure your sweet-tooth craving and celebrate National Lemonade Day all at once.

We know strawberry and lemonade is already a classic combo and turning it into a flavorful frozen pop was definitely the move.

The Doodles Lemon Ice flavor will take you back to your childhood when you’d eat spoonfuls of those Minute-Maid soft frozen lemonades on a hot summer day.

This is just like that old classic but even better. With the perfect balance of sour and sweet and a creamy consistency, this will become your new favorite flavor fast.
