This is my recipe for lemon-limeade. It is quick and easy and best of all, it’s fresh. I buy limes and organic lemons from a local grocery store and keep them in the refrigerator. I also have a Lime Squeezer and a Lemon Squeezer to make the job go fast. The amounts can easily doubled, tripled or quadrupled for a larger batch.
- 1 Fresh lemon
- 1 Fresh lime
- 16 oz water
- Sweeten to taste with sugar, honey or low-calorie sweeteer
Squeeze fresh lemon and fresh lime juice into a pitcher. Add water and sweetener, then stir thoroughly to mix. Serve over crushed ice or ice cubes. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint if desired.
Lemon-Limeade is a very delicious and refreshing … especially on a hot summer day!
