On our first visit to Mexico, I asked for lemonade at our first meal. Woah, baby! Amazingness! Our waiter said that they made it with limes instead of lemons. As soon as we got home, I started to search for a recipe that tasted like the limeade we discovered in Mexico. This one is close. Next time we go, I may just ask for the recipe at our favourite restaurant. :) But for now, when we get an urge for a taste of sunshine, this is the recipe I make.
makes 1/2 a gallon
1 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
add enough water to equal 1/2 a gallon (8 cups)
2 cups white sugar
1 cup water
Combine sugar & water in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it barely begins to boil. Cool.
Combine lime mixture & syrup. Stir well, refrigerate until cold. It really is better after "marinating" for several hours, so just leave it alone until it's cold.
