This is a fun recipe for cookouts and small get-togethers.
I love the addition of sweetened condensed milk. It takes the edge off of the potent citrus zing.
I hope you enjoy it as just as I do.
Easy Limeade (adapted from playzwithfood.com)
7 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
Thoroughly wash the limes and cut into thin slices. Place them in a blender or food processor. Add six cups of cold water and 1 cup of sugar. Blend on high until the lime slices are pulverized (at least 30 seconds).
Place a mesh strainer over the mouth of the pitcher. Carefully pour the blended lime mixture through the strainer. Discard the pulp. Then add the sweetened condensed milk to the pitcher. Mix well and refrigerate for a few hours. Serve and enjoy with lots of ice.
Note: Pick limes with thin skin. Thin skin makes for juicier limes. And if your limeade is bitter add a little more sweetened condensed milk.
