Best Kid-trepreneurial Biz: Mikaila's BeeSweet Lemonade

Best Kid-trepreneurial Biz: Mikaila's BeeSweet Lemonade
PHOTO BY Bret Brookshire

What do you get when you cross an old family recipe and a precocious 8-year-old? The best darn lemonade in town, served up by the most inspiring entrepreneur we know. BeeSweet Lemonade was born when kid-trepreneur Mikaila Ulmer, then 4, came across a recipe for the sweet heat-beating treat in her 88-year-old grandmother's cookbook. Mikaila took the recipe and added her own touch to create the mint-, honey-, and flaxseed-infused liquid that is the envy of every lemonade stand in town. When not dispensing tall glasses of her signature drink, Mikaila is harvesting honey or teaching others about the importance of honeybees. Indeed, Mikaila believes in the importance of giving back: 20% of the profits from the sale of her lemonade (available in fine establishments all over town) are given to the Texas Beekeepers Association in an effort to help save the bees she loves.
