What is orangeade? I'm guessing it's somewhat different from orange juice, even though orange juice is accepted as an answer.

It is a soft drink or a soda with an orange flavor. Therefore it is a bit different from orange juice, but we accept both answers! For more information click here

Orangeade is basically the orange version of lemonade. I suppose it just has a lot more sugar.

If you ever wanted to try one, some examples would be Orangina which originated in France, San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa (Blood Orange) from Italy, or εψα πορτοκαλάδα from Greece.

San Pellegrino is also made with soda. They're not the same thing. Why don't we learn the words for each of these beverages or at least not assume that they're interchangeable?

You can deduce it, as it is similar to lemonade.

How would one specify orangeade vs orangejuice in greek?

April 22, 2018

I wrote 'orange drink'. I think this should be correct. orange juice shouldn't be a correct answer because a fizzy drink has no real juice in it.

While that's true, we also call "πορτοκαλάδα" the orange juice as well (at least in northern Greece, I'm not so sure about the south).

Not sure about the south? Isn't Greece 5 feet tall? Χαχαχα

You made me smile, but you are right if we strictly follow the law.

No, πορτοκαλάδα is a juice. "My orange" is "το πορτοκάλι μου".
