Brazilian Limeade

Tried a new recipe the other day in my attempt to encourage Spring weather to arrive- we had a BBQ last weekend and I needed a yummy summery drink to go with the homemade burgers and potato salad. It sounds a bit weird but it was pretty yummy; I can see why some reviews said people wanted to add in some rum! BTW, my attempt to bring about the sunshine didn't work- it's snowed twice since that day. Just a little bit of snow, but still... snow.


  • 2 limes (I just used Key Lime juice to make things easier)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups water
  • ice


  1. Wash limes thoroughly. Cut off the ends and slice into eight wedges. Place limes in a blender with the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water, and ice.
  2. Blend in an electric blender, pulsing 5 times. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove rinds. Serve over ice.
FYI- don't make too much of this at once- it doesn't sit well and looks kinda gross after a while, when everything separates.
