AUSTIN, Texas — To beat the heat at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) this weekend, some people bring umbrellas, others find some shade, while many get themselves a lemonade. This year, 5-year-old Amal Vohra wanted to open a lemonade stand at the U.S. Grand Prix weekend.
Vohra's family already owns a food truck: Shawarma Point. Her uncle and dad are selling the Shawarma Point menu at COTA this weekend already, so they decided to use some of their space for a new stand: Amal's Lemonade Stand.
"We thought, 'Why don't we do Amal's Lemonade Stand?' It's every kid's dream to do a lemonade stand," Faraz Vohra, Amal's uncle, said. "What better way to start than doing it at the U.S. Grand Prix right?"
Amal and her 2.5-year-old sister, Aaminah, squeeze lemons together while snacking on ice chips. The two sisters don't say much, but they did take orders from thirsty customers and handed out lemonades and iced teas in Saturday's heat.
"I like working with my daddy, that's why I sell lemonade," Amal said.
After taking a short break from the heat, Amal found when life gives you lemons, it's time to make lemonade.
Amal's Lemonade Stand will be open Sunday for fans and customers at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix.
