Sparkling Honey Limeade


It really doesn’t get more refreshing than an ice cold drink of limeade. This fresh homemade limeade is so easy to make and it’s naturally sweetened with honey and lime.

Summer Lemonades and Limeades

You can never have too 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)!

Fresh homemade limeade is so easy to make, they only tedious part is getting all the juice out of those limes but the limeade is so worth it in the end!

Try Sweetening Limeade with Honey

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 Limeade as my sweet for the day.

    • Jaclyn: Perfect! I’m glad I could help with the heat! July 26, 2017 at 2:57pm Reply

  • Annie: Delicious! I tweaked it a bit but overall the base recipe is a great one. With a few changes this is going in my go to party recipe box. Definitely use club soda if you can…recommend going a bit lighter on the honey/sugar if your double/tripling/quadrupling this. Also…stays much fresher and doesn’t dilute if you use frozen fruit instead of ice. May 6, 2018 at 8:37am Reply
