Lemonade, typically made using lemon juice, water and sugar, does not naturally contain caffeine. However, some bottled beverages containing other ingredients in addition to lemonade, such as lemonade iced tea, do contain caffeine. Check labels of bottled beverages before buying to determine if the beverage contains caffeine.

While any lemonade that only contains water, sugar and lemon juice never has caffeine, the addition of other ingredients sometimes adds caffeine. In addition to lemonade iced teas, many other lemonade-flavored beverages contain caffeine, such as energy drinks and sodas. When a lemonade beverage does not contain caffeine, the item’s label typically states that it is a caffeine-free beverage.
