Cajun lemonade is the epitome of some of New Orleans’s most iconic flavors. Sugar, one of the most valuable commodities that ran through the port of New Orleans throughout the 17th to the 20th century, oftentimes went straight to rum distilleries across the American south and the island of Haiti. Combine those flavors with fresh, zesty lemon juice, some bubble for lift, and a dash of spicy hot sauce, and you got the ingredients for a refreshing party.
