Irish Drink Brown Lemonade

Commonly sold in Northern Ireland under the brand names Cantrell & Cochrane (C&C) and Maine, brown lemonade drinkers report a slight difference in taste from white lemonade, although brown lemonade’s appearance is the result of using brown food coloring. According to legend, brown lemonade was created to give shipbuilders in Belfast something masculine to drink when imbibing. Ale was banned from the shipyards and drinking white lemonade was considered too feminine.
