Brazilian Lemonade (Limeade)

One of my readers suggested I try Brazilian lemonade so I did and loved it! Then I spent several days making it kid-friendly, with no chance of bitterness, and giving it a longer life expectancy.

This is my version of Brazilian Limeade. I made it for our family pool party over the weekend and it was a hit! You’ll be surprised by the list of ingredients. It’s so crisp, refreshing and and has a unique flavor. It’s a really exciting summer party drink and it’s fun to watch people try it for the first time.

It goes something like this: look of intrigue followed by “mmm that’s really good!”  It’s smooth and has a fun frothy layer that reminds me of the fancy drinks we had on our honeymoon in Mexico.

Tips for success:

Select fresh limes with thin, smooth skins as they are the juiciest. Many people leave on the skins, cut the limes in 1/8ths and toss them directly into the blender, but my way of making it prevent the chances of getting a bitter drink. We figured it’s better to take the extra 3 minutes to juice ’em.

Ingredients for Brazilian Lemonade:

7 cups cold water
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup fresh lime juice (from 5 limes)
1 Tbsp lime zest (from 1 of the limes)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk Ice to serve

What you’ll need:

(1) A blender,

(2) a pretty pitcher (I love the “100% Soda Lime Glass Pitcher” that I purchased from our local JCPenney)

(3) serving glasses. Have you explored the JCPenney home collection? They have loads of great summer entertaining gear.

How to Make Brazilian Limeade (Lemonade):

1. Stir together 7 cups cold water with 3/4 cup sugar and set aside

2. Add 1 Tbsp lime zest and juice from 5 limes into your blender jar (it’s super fast to juice limes if you have a citrus squeezer like this one). Pour 3 cups of your sugar water into the blender (I only add 3 cups at this time so my blender doesn’t splash all over the place)

3. Add 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Blend until smooth and frothy. Stir in remaining sugar water and serve over ice

    My favorite thing about summer definitely has to be not having to wear layers of clothing, worry about if I need a jacket or not, things like that. It’s so much easier especially since I always take my children everywhere with me. We just put on our shoes, grab the keys and go (unless we need to pack for the beach…..:-) Reply
