We have two favorite summer drinks around our house. One is Brazilian limeade, but we have altered it a little bit to keep it from getting bitter. The second is my Mom’s lemonade recipe and its the best! Not too sour, and just the right amount of sweet.
You will need: 5 limes, 6-7 cups water, 1 c sugar, and 6 Tbsp sweet and condensed milk. Cut limes in half.
Then juice them. I have a Citrus Juicer and it is one of my favorite appliances.
Next zest the lime skins. I use the inside of my grater and it works great. Most Brazilian limeades tell you to blend the limes but blending the whole lime causes the juice to get bitter as the day goes on. By just zesting them the juice is just as good the next day.
Add the juice, zest, and sugar to the water and stir.
Right before serving add the sweet and condensed milk and stir again.
Enjoy! We store ours in Mixing Pitcher so that it is easy to mix and pour.
