In honor of the Olympics and the recent heat waves, for today’s blog post we bring you a recipe for Brazilian Lemonade. Don’t let the name fool you, though– it’s made with limes! In many parts of South America, the word for lime is limón… which sounds a lot like “limónade”.
4 juicy limes
1 cup of sugar
6 cups of water
6 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk
Begin by mixing the water and sugar together and setting aside to chill.
Make sure to thoroughly was your limes as you’ll be using the skin as well as the insides. Once your limes are squeaky clean, cut off the ends and cut each lime into 8ths.
Put 1/2 of the limes in your blender and pour in roughly 1/2 of the sugar water you created earlier. Make sure the lid is on tight and about 5 times. Strain the lime mixture through the strainer and into the pitcher you plan to serve in. Use a spoon or your hand to press all the juice out of the limes. Dump the remaining pulp in the trash. Repeat this step with the remaining limes and sugar-water mixture.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and serve immediately over ice.
