"My husband had this lemonade at a Brazilian restaurant and loved it so much, he asked for the recipe, which we've 'perfected' over time," says Kelley Gee.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place all the ingredients in a blender. Add 4 cups cold water and blend on high speed until limes are slightly chopped. Strain into a pitcher and then, with the strainer still resting above the pitcher, slowly pour about 1 more cup water (depending on how sweet you want the drink) through the strainer over the lime pieces to extract all the residual sugar and juice.

Step 2

Note: Nutritional analysis is per cup.

Chef's Notes

Strain out the lime rinds so the lemonade won't get bitter.

This stuff is delicious! Its not to sweet, not too tart, very refreshing. Use a big strainer, or it will run all over and make a mess. Best served right after its made, seems to take on a bitter taste after sitting around for awhile. Usually not a problem at my house.

Offensive word

This is not about the recipe, which sounds great. This is about the article ("The Power of Canned Milk") that referred me here. It was about various recipes using sweetened condensed milk. A four-letter word was used in the entry on this recipe. Why use a disgusting word, especially related to food? It was unnecessary. I object to having to read such garbage.
