Ready in 45 minutes

This not too sweet, not too sour, freshly squeezed limade is a great way to quench a summers day thirst!!


2 cups Fresh squeezed lime juice; 10-15 limes
1 cup Sugar; or to taste
6 cups Water
1 Lime; sliced

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Always wash your fruit before preparing.

Heat 2 cups of water in microwave or sauce pan and pour in sugar, stir until dissolved. Set aside.

Cut each lime in half and use either a squeeze or a juicer until you collect 2 cups (16 ounces) of lemon juice and pulp. Remove any seeds.

Pour the prepared sugar water, lime juice, and remaining water into a 2 quart pitcher and stir.

Serve over ice and garnish with a lime slice.


Heating the water before stirring in the sugar helps the sugar dissolve easier!!

You can use the lemons for zest in other dishes!!

2 cups = 16 fluid ounces!!

A citrus juicer works great!! (no need to squeeze)

Cutting a slot half way through your lemon garnish makes for a better looking garnish!!

I made the sugar-water mixture on the stove and put some mint leaves in for an almost mojito-like result. I only needed about 5 cups of water, I like mine on the more tart side!
