You can never have to many lemonade recipes right? This is the third lemonade (or in this case limeade) recipes in a month, it’s summer and I’m slightly obsessed (definitely try the Watermelon Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade recipes I shared too)! It really doesn’t get more refreshing than an ice cold drink like this! Fresh limeade is so easy to make, they only tedious part is getting all the juice out of those limes but it’s so worth it in the end!
For this limeade I decided to sweeten it with half honey and half sugar because lime and honey always pair so well together. It would also be delicious if you wanted to mix in some cherry juice which I think I’ll try next time. I used to be someone that said I was only going to get my sugars from desserts not drinks, but with a drink this good that has changed my whole outlook. I’d definitely choose this as my sweet for the day.
Bring on your sweltering heat summer, with this drink I’m ready!
