Summer’s not quite over yet (as evidenced by the 90+ degree September we’re currently having in Nashville), so I thought I’d pass this one along while there’s still some heat in the air.
You can make this with lemon, lime, key lime or any combination thereof; today I had a bunch of limes so limeade it is.
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 1/4 cups lime juice (or lemon or key lime)
- Additional 4 cups water
- Heat the water and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved; you can do this in a saucepan on the stove or in a glass Pyrex in the microwave
- Let the sugar mixture cool and stir in juice and additional water
- Serve over ice, ideally on a veranda.
This may or may not be great with a splash of vodka. I haven’t heard either way. Ahem.
