Friends, this post was first published in July of 2019.
Serves 6-8 people
This quick and easy recipe for making fresh homemade limonada, lemonade or limeade is a great family treat on a hot day. Seven out of seven Downings love this drink.
- ½ cup of sugar, more or less based on your preference
- 2 limes or lemons, quartered and any seeds removed
- 8 cups of cold water
- Ice cubes as desired and lemon/lime and strawberry slices to garnish
First. Place quartered limes or lemons in the blender with 4 cups of water and sugar.
Then. Blend until the limes or lemon is completely pulverized, the mixture should be slightly foamy with a whitish color.
Then. Strain the lemonade and add the remaining 4 cups of water.
Enjoy. Serve chilled or with ice.
Because you blend the whole limes/lemons, skin and all. It does get bitter quickly, so drink it the same day you make it.
Love, The Downing Family
