Summer Vacation has officially started over here at our house. The heat has definitely arrived here and one of my favorites parts of summer are being able to enjoy an ice cold refreshing drink. Today I am sharing our favorite Limeade Recipe.
I have loved Limeade ever since I was about 10 years old and had some at my friend Suzanne’s house. Her mom made the BEST Limeade ever. At Costco the other day a large bag of fresh limes was calling to me…begging me to take them home and turn them into a tasty beverage. So…I did!
Want to make some at your house? Here is our recipe:
Fresh Limeade Recipe
- 1/2 cup Fresh Lime Juice (about 6 limes)
- 2/3 cup Sugar, Granulated
- 2 quarts cold water
- Cut limes in half and squeeze lime juice into a 2 quart pitcher. Add Sugar and stir until dissolved. Fill pitcher with cold water, stir and chill in refrigerator.
If you want to serve it as a Frozen Limeade…and why would you NOT?! Simply pour it into your ice cream maker and follow your Ice Cream Maker’s specific instructions to freeze it.
Our ice cream maker took about 45 minutes to turn it into a super smooth ice cold slushy. So good and so refreshing! What more could you ask for on a hot summer day?
