Brazilian Lemonade. This is my most favorite drink.

Brazilian Lemonade

Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit. It seemed very wrong. And then I had some at Tucano’s and my life has not been the same since. It starts off with fresh, juicy limes. You pop them in a blender with some sugar water and pulse just a few times.

Pour the mixture from the blender through a strainer and into a pitcher, thus saving all of the flavorful liquid. Then the secret ingredient: sweetened condensed milk. Brazilian LemonadeOur Best Bites Ingredients: 4 juicy limes (try and find ones with thin, smooth skins; they’re the juiciest and the thin skin cuts down on the chance of your drink being bitter) 1 c. sugar 6 c. cold water 6 Tbsp. sweetened condensed milk Instructions: Place 1/2 of the limes in your blender.

Cherry Limeade While my family loves fresh homemade lemonade, we also like to change it up and make limeade too.

Limeade is made exactly the same way as lemonade. There are some recipes floating around the web about putting the whole limes in a blender to make limeade. However, after experimenting with this method, I would not recommend it unless you love extremely bitter drinks. Simply using the freshly squeezed lime juice, as well as some pulp if you like, is the way to go if you want a limeade without the bitterness. Cherry Limeade Recipe Ingredients the juice of 4 limes, or 1/2 cup lime juice 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup water 1 cup 100% juice, no sugar added cherry juice 3 cups club soda water and ice maraschino cherries lime slices Method 1. 2.
