Del’s frozen lemonade is a Rhode Island tradition and unlike any “ice“ you’ve had before. It was first made in Naples in the 1840s by Great Grandfather DeLucia, who preserved winter snow in caves until summer, when he served it with ripe lemons. Although the current recipe no longer uses winter-preserved snow, you’ll still find tasty chunks of real lemon (our favorite), or watermelon, blueberry, or cherry in your Del’s. We also enjoy mixing lemon and another flavor (or spiking your Del’s with a shot of your favorite tequila) for a perfect afternoon treat.
Find Del’s trucks anywhere you might be craving a cool respite—at the beaches and state parks, at Brenton Point, and elsewhere around town. You won’t find a truck parked on crowded Thames Street, but you can visit their storefront there on the corner of Memorial.
