Limeade

Thanks to an abundance of limes in Jamaica, limeade is a common drink. Unsweetened bottled lime juice can be swapped instead of fresh for an even quicker limeade.

Ingredients

  • 5 to 7 medium limes, plus slices for garnish
  • 1/2 cup sugar or honey, plus more if needed

Directions

  1. Roll the limes back and forth over the counter with the palm of your hand. Cut limes in half, and juice them by hand or with a juicer; reserve rinds. (You should have about 1/2 cup juice.) Transfer juice and rinds to a large pitcher.

  2. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add sugar or honey, and stir until dissolved. Pour syrup into the pitcher, and add 4 cups water. Stir until well blended. Add more sugar or honey, if desired. Refrigerate 1 hour. Discard rinds. Serve limeade garnished with lime slices.
