Brazilian Limeade



Here is the perfect drink for the dog days of August. You only need four ingredients and thanks to your blender, it takes only a couple of minutes too make this creamy, sweet-tart drink. While the limeade is outstanding on it's own, it can be made even better with the addition of some adult spirits :-)


Ingredients
4 limes, washed
6 cups water
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk


Directions
  1. Wash limes thoroughly by, scrubbing the skin with hand or dish soap to remove any pesticides or wax.  Slice off the ends of each lime, then cut them into 1/8ths.  
  2. In a blender, combine half of the water, half of the sugar and half of the limes, then pulse 5-7 times.  Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a pitcher, pressing the lime pulp with a spoon to help release juices, then discarding the remaining skins and pulp.  Repeat with the other half of the water, sugar and limes.
  3. Stir the sweetened condensed milk into the limeade and serve with lots of ice and thin slices of lime for garnish.  If the drink tastes bitter at all, you can add a little extra sweetened condensed milk or sugar as needed.



For a refreshing cocktail add tequila, rum or vodka
