  1. Ade

    Ade is a suffix used to denote a cold beverage made from water, fruit juice, and sweetener. Examples of its usage are: lemonade, limeade, cherryade, and orangeade. Similar beverages that do not contain fruit juice may use the suffix aid in their brand names, e.g., Kool-Aid and Flavor Aid. Ade is also used as a suffix in several brand names, including Lucozade, Powerade, Accelerade, Staminade, Sporade, and Gatorade, all of which are marketed as sports drinks. Lucozade was the first of these brands; it was first manufactured in 1927 under the name Glucozade, and was marketed briefly in 1928 under the name Marital-Ade.
