Je m’en fous
Where: Order online and either get delivery or pick-up in Cartierville.
Reason to try: These lemonades are basically works of art that you can also drink. You can pick from four colourful flavours, including classic, lavender, strawberry, and hibiscus. Each bottle features a sprig of natural flavouring and pairs perfectly with the afternoon tea boxes that make for an ideal light (and beautiful) picnic.
Alice & Theo
Where: 3870, rue Wellington
Reason to try: It's always a good idea to swing by Alice & Theo for their pastries and artisanal ice cream, but now you have another reason. Their line of fruity lemonades includes pear, passion fruit, litchi, lavender, and passion fruit with matcha. The drinks aren't too sweet and feature all-natural ingredients.
Where: 26, rue Gounod
Reason to try: Pucker up for these refreshing rose and matcha-flavoured lemonades near Parc Jarry. More tangy than sweet, these drinks make a tasteful accessory to any photo you take at this highly Instagrammable café. There are roses lining the ceiling and the romantic swing bench is backed by bright flower wallpaper with eyes!
Caffe In Gamba
Where: 5263, avenue du Parc
Reason to try: This homemade raspberry lemonade goes well with any of the fruity Third Wave coffees available at the Mile End destination. Cold brew, matcha, and iced tea are also on the menu.
Where: 423, Pl. Jacques-Cartier
Reason to try: You can get fresh-pressed lemonade, a strawberry slushie or frozen non-alcoholic piña colada from this ice cream spot in the Old Port. You might also want to pair a drink with their new sorbet made from fresh peaches!
