A Refreshing Tradition | Toomer’s Lemonade
Written by Jorydn Welden | Recipe adaptation by Meredith Tolleson
At the corner of College Street and Magnolia Avenue stands a beacon of tradition. For Auburn University students and fans alike, Toomer’s Corner is so much more than just a place to unleash massive amounts of toilet paper after a football game. It is where the Auburn community can unite and celebrate important victories as one. Countless memories have been made at the beloved street corner, and neither fire nor poison has been able to dampen the Auburn spirit that lives there.
Famous Toomer’s Drugs Lemonade
Central to the tradition of Toomer’s Corner is the world-famous freshly squeezed lemonade from Toomer’s Drugs. As refreshing as it is sweet, no trip to Auburn is complete without a glass or two. This cold, old-fashioned beverage is so fresh, in fact, that you can even watch them squeeze the lemons on site, as they go through upwards of 60 cases of lemons and 500 lbs of sugar on a typical Auburn game day. You can find an adaptation of a smaller batch recipe below!
Cheers to Auburn Football
This weekend, Auburn faces Clemson in a Tiger v. Tiger showdown. As the defending National Champions, Clemson has a lot to prove as they try to climb their way back to the top. Auburn hopes to stop their momentum and serve them a crushing defeat on the road to pay them back for last year’s opening week loss.
