Brazilian Lemonade

A hot summer day practically calls out for fresh lemonade. When I saw the recipe for Brazilian Lemonade which consists of no lemons and uses condensed milk, I was very intrigued.

This lemonade was delicious. However, I prefer a more traditional lemonade with fresh squeezed lemons and a bit of fresh mint. I found this lemonade to be a bit heavy due to the condensed milk. It was more of a sweet treat than a refreshing and cooling drink.

I would save this recipe more for a party than everyday sipping.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Cups Cold Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Limes
  • 6 Tbsp Sweetened Condensed Milk

Directions:

  • Mix water and sugar together till the sugar dissolves. Place water in fridge to chill.
  • Use soap and water and wash limes thoroughly.
  • Cut ends off limes. Cut into eighths.
  • Place half the limes and 1 cup of water into a blender. Pulse 5-10 times.
  • Strain. Repeat with the second half of the limes.
  • Add the remaining water to the lime water. Add the condensed milk and stir.
  • Pour over ice. Add extra slices of lime.
  • Enjoy!
