So one could say this is a "ci-trick" question.

Lol, I said Citric Acid. Well, I guess that's still correct, since lemonade comes from lemons, and lemons have citric acid.

Yep, citric acid is in lemonade, and even if it wasn't, it would still be an acceptable answer.

I just said "it is not a strong acid, maybe vinegar or something similar". Both lemon juice and vinegar have a Ph of about 2 so I think I was on the right track as well. Not sure which I'd rather we through - sticky lemon juice, or smelly vinegar.

Cool teaser. I wonder what show this is?

By the way, Habs, I'm weird and like the smell of vinegar.

Lemonade is not technically an acid, it is an acidic substance. Lemonade is usually around 80% water

I said acetic acid, thinking it is vinegar...but upon looking it up, vinegar is only 8% acetic acid, and it is strong enough to burn your skin. So yeah. Fail.
