Red Lemonade.

When I was doing the Welsh course, it asked me to select lemonade, and there was a dark red drink under the lemonĂªd (and no other options that looked like more like lemonade) thinking this was a mistake I reported it as an improper picture, but as I went on I saw more images of a dark red drink labelled as lemonĂªd, is lemonade red in Wales? Is there some reason that this red lemonade pictures are in the welsh course? Can someone from Wales please provide insight, I've only ever seen lemonade in Yellow, and occasionally pale pink (generally labelled as pink lemonade).

I live in Ireland, not Wales, but we have Red Lemonade here, so they probably have it Wales too. If you take a look at this page you can see it: http://www.nileguide.com/destination/blog/dublin/2010/07/17/guide-to-irish-snacks/ (and other Irish snacks).

I hope this helps!

Thank you, I'm surprised I've never heard of it now, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for it when I'm in Ireland in September. Still strange to use such regional image. But however now I wish I could go back and unreport it. I don't want to clog up the contributors work.

Even though it might cause some confusion, I think using regional things are good because you can learn more about the culture;)

Oh, and have fun here in September!

Duolingo decides which pictures go with which word. There are generally a series of pictures for individual words (although not many words have associated pictures).

The 'red lemonade' and a few others which are yellow are the pictures in the series associated with the word lemonade.

Curious. Duolingo is an american site, and although I'm not American I have spent a fair amount of time in america, and they tend to have the same kind of lemonade as here in Canada, or at least all that I've seen. I wonder how the red lemonade ended up as part of the photo series.

In Germany, red lemonade is very popular in the eastern states, it was a typical drink in the GDR. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fassbrause
