Brazilian Limeade

Do you like lemonade?  Then you'll love limeade!  It is refreshing and tart and delicious!  This recipe is a twist on a classic limeade - Brazilian Limeade!  It has a creamy, sweet component that will keep you pouring glass after glass.  I recently made this at a party and I received an inbox full of recipe requests the next day!

First you want to make a simple syrup - equal parts sugar and water.  I did two cups sugar and two cups water.  Heat on your stove top just until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.

Next you want to juice your limes.  I don't have a fancy juicer or citrus juicer, so I use my good ol' fashion lemon press.  If you roll your limes across the counter with a little muscle they will produce more juice.  You'll need 8 to 12 limes depending on the size.  You just want to squeeze about a cup and a half of juice.

Next, combine your lime juice, simple syrup and about 5 cups of water in a pitcher.  Now for the secret ingredient!  Sweet and condensed milk.  Pour about half of a 14 oz can into your limeade and stir well. Serve with lots of ice and a lime slice.
