To celebrate Summer Solstice and try and keep ourselves cool on the hottest day of the year so far, I made DH and I some home made limeade. I know, most people make lemonade-which is really yummy too, but I prefer limes over lemons anyday so 9 times out of 10 I’ll make limeade instead. Soooo, refreshing.And very simple recipe.
If you’ve never tried making your own homemade limeade or lemonade here’s my go to recipe. You can make this recipe without a juicer or a lemonade maker but it will definitely give you an arm workout! Good or bad depending on how you look at it I guess (=
- 1 qt. (4 C.) Cold Water
- 1/2 qt (2 C.) Ice Cubes
- 3/4 C. Sugar (Splenda is also really good in this recipe, try using just a little less though)
- 6 Limes or 4 Large Lemons to juice and one extra to slice and put in the pitcher after mixing
Add water, ice and sweetener to a pitcher.
Cut the limes/lemons in half and juice thoroughly.
Add to the water/sugar/ice mixture and stir thoroughly. Enjoy (= (Easy peasy!)
