Where to Buy Schweppes Bitter Lemon

Updated on February 2, 2016

Find Schweppes Original Bitter Lemon Drink in the US

The Schweppes company was started in 1783 by a man named Jacob Schweppe. He liked to dabble in science and came upon a way of producing carbonated water commercially. Schweppes started producing its original Bitter Lemon formula in 1957. If you can remember Crystal Pepsi, then you probably recall Schweppes Bitter Lemon. The drink is no longer produced in the United States, however you can still buy it online if you are a hardcore lemonphile.

Schweppes Original Bitter Lemon soft drink is produced with quinine, sweetener and sugar. Served up chilled in the summertime it is a refreshing carbonated drink that will make you smack your lips. It is truly the ultimate bitter lemon soda. It has just the right amount of tartness that does not overwhelm the taste of the lemon. It can be sipped at room temperature but it is best served over ice or served chilled. For those that appreciate it, they know it has the perfect balance of tartness and lemon.

How to Serve Schwepps

Schwepps Bitter Lemon Recipes

Schweppes Bitter Lemon can be drunk as is, or served as a mixer. It is delicious by itself either chilled over served over ice. It's a wonderful summer drink that's best had while reclining on a comfortable lawn chair and soaking up the sun. Oh man, I'm salivating now just thinking about it!

You can make up your own Schwepps Bitter cocktail recipe by mixing it with your favorite alcohol. Gin and Vodka work very well. The bitter lemon taste is not for everyone, but those who love the taste of lemons will definitely be smacking their lips over this drink. Try out some different combinations.

      I drink the shit out of this when I am in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. And then mourn when I come back.

      Lufthansa actually has a different brand of it available to drink on flights to the US from Germany (and possibly other places), but do not have ginger ale.

      I have always loved Schweppes Bitter Lemon. On a tour to Germany, I introduced a friend to it & she absolutely loved it. We were so happy when we found out we could get Bitter Lemon (the CD brand) at our local grocery store. I had a gastric bypass & found that the only soda type drink is Schweppes Bitter Lemon, but now I can't find it in any stores nearby!

      During the 60s schweppes was the only drink for me. Over ice or with gin. Great taste, and you need to bring it back.
