Fresh Squeezed Limeade is the perfect drink to make it feel like summer all year long.

About 7 years ago, our friends Gabe & Becca introduced us to the idea of Fresh Squeezed Limeade. I was never a big fan of lemonade, it was too tart for me. It never occurred to me to squeeze a lime instead of a lemon. I fell in love, instantly. Gabe’s mom is from Mexico, and she grew up drinking it daily. Limes, sugar, water– that’s all it is! I’ve shared this simple drink with many friends over the years, and it was new to them, too, so today I share it with all of you!

Simply put, for every lime you squeeze, add 1/4 cup sugar, and 2 cups of water.  So you can make a personal glass that size if you’d like. On a larger scale to fill a standard 2 Liter pitcher (8 cups), follow the recipe below:

My kids love to help squeeze the limes into the pitcher.

We enjoy it all year round, but it seems especially appropriate to enjoy a cool glass of limeade on a hot summer day.  I love limes and I generally keep them on  hand.   I squeeze limes into my Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dip, as well as onto my chips that I eat Queso with.  I’ve got another fun lime post coming your way later this week, so stay tuned!
