Lemon, lime and bitters (LLB) is a mixed drink made with (clear) lemonade (Sprite etc.), lime cordial, and Angostura bitters. The lemonade is sometimes substituted with soda water or lemon squash, which is more akin to what is called “lemonade” in North America.
|Served||Straight up or with ice|
|Standard garnish||Slice of lemon or lime|
|Standard drinkware||Highball glass|
|Commonly used ingredients|
|Preparation||Rim the inside (and optionally outside) of the glass with 4 to 5 dashes of Angostura Bitters then pour lemonade and lime cordial (15–30 mL) into glass. Garnish with Lemon if desired. Has 0.2% alcohol. Angostura LLB is available in cans as well in a pre-mixed version.|
Angostura LLB is also now available as a "pre-mixed" beverage in a can. This is available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados and elsewhere throughout the Caribbean, where the beverage's popularity has increased since its introduction in the region in the mid 2010s.
It is often considered to be a non-alcoholic cocktail (or mocktail) due to its exceedingly low alcohol content, though some establishments consider it to be alcoholic and will not serve it without identification or proof of age.
It is made to order in most bars but a pre-mixed version is made by a number of soft drink companies and this version is widely available in supermarkets.
