Ava's lemonade started with a conversation between a mother, Maggie and her 3 year old daughter, Ava in Durham, North Carolina. After that conversation Maggie decided to do a taste test with her lemonade recipe and her mom's lemonade recipe at her salon. Her mom's recipe won. They got the recipe from Ava's grandma and have been rolling every since. They started selling cups and now have had their hands full selling lemonade by the gallons in the local community and shipping to customers across the United States.
