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