We've been enjoying fresh squeezed limeades quite a bit this summer. Thanks to my friend, Michelle, who started us on making these.
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
7 cups cold water
Heat 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar, until sugar is completely dissolved. (It usually has to just come to boiling). Add to 7 cups cold water. Chill. When ready to serve, add fresh lime juice to taste.
The juice of 1 lime with something like 1 1/2 cups of the sugar water (and a little ice) is just right for us. Enjoy!
