This drink is named after the traditional nursery rhyme, "Oranges and Lemons," which refers to the church bells of St. Clement's in London, where citrus fruits were historically unloaded. Consisting of orange juice and lemon-lime soda, it provides a sweet and tangy taste profile, with the effervescence of the soda adding a pleasant fizz.

It is an ideal choice for those seeking a non-intoxicating refreshment that doesn't sacrifice flavor.
