This recipe is for “Brazilian lemonade”, but it tastes just like the lemonade I used to drink in Egypt over two decades ago. It’s delicious and refreshing, but it does require a blender and a strainer. The original recipe asks for 1/2 cup of sugar, but I felt it was a little too sweet. Next time I’ll make it with 1/3 cup.
- 2 limes
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 Tbsp. condensed milk
- 3 cups water
- 3 ice cubes + more for serving
Wash the limes, cut and discard both ends, and then cut them into 8 segments each. Put limes, sugar, condensed milk, water and 3 ice cubes in a blender. Blend until the ice has disintegrated. Strain and serve over ice.
