This limonade was enjoyed in the Place des Vosges, a lovely little park that’s part of the 3rd and 4th districts here in Paris.

Fun French Facts about this Place include:

  • it’s the oldest square in the city
  • it’s the first planned square-shaped square in Europe
  • it has been home to Victor Hugo, Colette and Dominique Strauss-Kahn
  • it has beautiful arcades running along it
  • rumor has it that Napoleon may have conquered his first woman there as it used to be a spot where young officers engaged “ladies of the night”

  1. Ah, Place des Vosges. One of my favourite places in Paris. It is such a lovely square and to think that the houses surrounding it were almost turned down in the 60s…

  2. Ha! I have a photo of the same limonade – the brasserie by where my family lives served it and my step son drank it each time we went. I thought it was hilarious but he was quite unhappy with me for not being able to explain the joke.

    • That’s so funny! I’ve looked for it everywhere and can’t find it. I wonder if the people who named it had / have any idea what a great name they came up with. They should totally market it abroad.
