Brazilian Lemonade

Brazilian LemonadeBrazilian 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.

Recipe Ingredients:

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

Cooking Directions:

  1. 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.)
  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into pitcher to remove rinds.
  3. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Best served immediately over ice cubes or crushed ice.

Makes 8 (1 cup) servings.
