Orange soft drink

A glass of Barr orangeade

Orange soft drinks (called orange soda or orange pop[1] in certain regions of the United States and Canada, orangeade in the UK, aranciata in Italy, or the genericised trademark orangina in France) are carbonated orange drinks.

Non-carbonated orangeade, i.e. the direct orange analogue of lemonade, is also made, with brands such as Minute Maid, and blends like cherry orangeade and lemon-orangeade are also made in some places, with recipes being commonly available.

Orange soft drinks (especially those without orange juice) often contain very high levels of sodium benzoate, and this often imparts a slight metallic taste to the beverage. Other additives commonly found in orange soft drinks include rosin and sodium hexametaphosphate.

Orangeade first appeared as a variety of carbonated drink provided in soda fountains in American drugstores in the late 19th century, brands including Miner's and Lash's. A recipe for homemade orangeade appears in editions of Fannie Farmer's cookbook.
