BeeSweet Lemonade
Austin, USA

Mikaila Ulmer – 8 year old owner of BeeSweet Lemonade and 2012 Teenpreneur of the Year Award Recipient. Mikaila Ulmer started her lemonade company at the tender age of 4 when her fascination with bees and honey got a boost from her great-grandmother’s 1946 Flax seed Lemonade recipe. BeeSweet Lemonade is a premium old-fashion lemonade sweetened with local Texas honey and 100% pure cane sugar. The lemonade is infused with flax seed and mint. Mikaila seeks to save the honey bee and increase awareness of its day to day importance. Mikaila donates a portion of the proceeds from her lemonade business to organizations like Heifer International and National Bee Keepers Associations.
