Brazilian lemons look and taste more like common (Persian) limes, so this lemonade recipe does not call for lemons. The touch of sweetened condensed milk gives this drink a rich, subtle creaminess while the blender creates a frothy finish. This refreshing cooler, ideal on a hot summer day, is best served immediately as it becomes bitter tasting when made ahead of time.
4 fresh limes, washed thoroughly
6 cups water - divided use
1 cup granulated sugar - divided use
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk - divided use
14 ice cubes (1 tray) - divided use, plus more for serving
- Cut off ends of each lime and cut each into 8 wedges. Place 16 wedges, 3 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk and 7 ice cubes in blender. Cover; blend for 20 seconds. (Blending longer will cause drink to become bitter.)
- Strain through a fine mesh strainer into pitcher to remove rinds.
- Repeat with remaining ingredients.
- Best served immediately over ice cubes or crushed ice.
Makes 8 (1 cup) servings.
