How to Make Easy & Affordable Limeade

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Hi everyone! I’m excited to share this little recipe with you. It’s a great drink to make when you have unexpected guests’ at your house and you need to serve something delicious and quick. You can even make this drink to go with your lunch or dinner—that’s what I usually do. My family loves it, and I’m sure yours will too.
I’m going to explain how I make it to the taste I prefer; but by all means use the steps I’m providing for you and turn the limeade into your own. The taste that I prefer is as follows! (Enjoy):
What you’ll need: 
1.       Blender
2.       Zester
3.       Fine mesh strainer
4.       Knife
5.       2 large limes
6.       1 ½ tbs. of lime zest
7.       1 ¼ cup of granulated sugar
8.       5 ¼ cup of water
Makes a little over a liter, prep time: 10-15 minutes.
Step 1: What I do first is zest my limes—about 1 ½ tbs.
Step 2: Cut both your limes in half like so:
Step 3:  Cut off the skin (being careful not to cut off the pulp).
Step 4: Add your cut limes, 1 cup of water, and ¼ cup of sugar to the blender and mix.

Step 5: Once blended, place your strainer over a bowl and pour the contents into your bowl, than you are left with the wonderful juice.

Step 6: From this point I simply add the rest of the water, sugar(4 ¼ cups water/1 cup sugar)and lime zest, but I add the water one cup at a time, tasting each time to make sure the flavor is where I want it to be. However, you can add as much or as little water and sugar as you like. Once you’ve got the 2 limes, 1 cup of water, and ¼ cup of sugar, you can add as much water or sugar as you like to taste.
Once you’ve finished—serve and enjoy! Cheers!

    1. Awesome! Thank you Suzie ;-D It is extremely refreshing--it was funny, after serving myself this class I took it outside so I could snap a few more outdoor photos of the limeade but it didn't even last--I ended up drinking it all by the time I had set up my tri-pod, hahaha. It's really good.
