How to get a free lemonade when dining out

See also

Do you like lemonade? Do you like fresh lemonade? Would you like fresh lemonade for free every time you dine out? If so, here are four things you will need to secure a free lemonade.

Water

Almost all restaurants will not charge you for a glass of water. This is the main ingredient when it comes to receiving your free lemonade. Therefore, order a glass of water and make sure that you order it without ice.

Sliced lemons

Ask for lemons to season your water with. Just like a glass of water, sliced lemons to flavor your water or other drinks are free at most restaurants.

Be sure to ask for more than the normal served amount. You will need about five to six sliced lemons for a good tasting lemonade.

Sugar

Sugar, like water and sliced lemons, is another free condiment offered by most restaurants. You can receive it in fairly large amounts if it is given to you in a pouring device, jar, or shaker.

If you are offered sugar in packets rather than jars, ask for approximately six to eight packets. Do the same for artificial sweetener if this is your preference besides sugar.

Drinking straw

Not all restaurants give straws upfront with your drink. Therefore, be sure ask for a drinking straw to make your lemonade. This will be your stirring device.

Squeeze in your lemons' juice and add your six to eight packets or teaspoons of sugar. Then take your straw and stir up the mixture until the sugar is all dissolved. Once this is accomplished, you will have a free glass of freshly made lemonade.
