what’s the pink they put in pink lemonade that makes it so poppin

that’s pussy babe!

Some of the replies so far are moving in the right direction, but I didn’t see any that got down the details. Specifics matter.

In his book How The Hot Dog Found Its Bun, [via huffpost] Josh Chetwynd tells us about "a salesman, by the name of Pete Conklin, who sold concessions at the circus. When working a shift in 1857, he ran out of water to make his lemonade (with no access to a nearby well or spring).”

Rather than lose out on business, “Pete sprinted into the dressing tent and came across Fannie Jamieson, one of the show’s bareback riders. She had just cleaned her pink tights in a vat of water, leaving the liquid looking a deep pink hue.” He used the water without a second thought, and sold it as “fine strawberry lemonade.” It’s reported that he “did double the business of ordinary refreshment and, allegedly, ushered in a new style of the drink.”

So, basically, yeah. 

One woman in particular. 

And her name was Fannie.
