Limeade is a nice change of pace for a summertime drink.

Yield 6-8 servings
Time 5 minutes
  • small saucepan
  • whisk
  • juicer
  • pitcher or large bowl
  • ½ c sugar
  • 2 Q water
  • 3-4 limes, juiced
Directions Combine sugar with 1 c water in the saucepan, and whisk together over high heat until the water just starts to boil.

Add sugar water to lime juice and remaining water and stir well. Add ice and enjoy.

Notes My limeade is lightly flavored and very refreshing. If you like a stronger flavor, double the lime and sugar – you can always add more water if it’s too strong.

Lemonade is another great summertime drink.
