Homemade Limeade


Hi everyone!  I'm back with another family favorite: Homemade Limeade.  The tricky thing about the "recipe" is that you basically need to make it to fit your taste.  I'm sorry if the approximations are annoying, but it's kind of fun to experiment :)  To make this yummy drink you'll need:

1. Nellie and Joe's Famous Keylime Juice (see picture below)
2. Water
3. Ice Cubes
4. 3 Limes


I think that you could substitute almost any lime juice that you want though :)  

Directions:

Pour 1/2 of the bottle of limejuice in a pitcher.  Then add cold water until you have filled up 3/4 of the pitcher.  Then add sugar to taste.  We ended up adding about 2 cups or so.  Stir well to ensure that the sugar doesn't end up at the bottom.  Next add in enough ice cubes that your pitcher  is full.  Next slice limes and add them to make it look pretty.  Here's a close up:


Ok, this is seriously yummy!  My sister knew that I was going to make this and she couldn't make it to family dinner, and she sent a text begging us to save her some :)  It is yummy and pretty.  I love it when that happens!  Here is one more shot of my yummy limeade:


This drink reminds me of Summer and BBQ's.  What do y'all think?
