June 25, 2011: Homemade Limeade Recipe

Bookmark and Share

What sounds better on a hot summer day than refreshing, tangy, homemade limeade? Okay, sometimes a beer sounds better for a lazy summer afternoon while you’re enjoying a good book or sitting poolside, a tall, ice-cold glass of limeade can be just the ticket. Plus, it’s easy to make – it just takes some muscles to juice all those limes but if you’ve got an electric machine, then you’ve got no excuse!

Homemade Limeade

1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup boiling water
2 t. grated lime rind
1 ½ cup fresh lime juice (I used 1 dozen regular limes and 4 key limes)
5 cups cold water

Dissolve the sugar in the boiling water and pour into pitcher. Add remaining ingredients and stir well; refrigerate several hours. Garnish with mint leaves or lime slices.
