Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the zesty fresh taste of limonada! It's easy to make and we like to serve ours in beautiful recycled glassware from Mexico.
3 lemons and 1 lime, quartered with seeds removed
8 cups of cold water
Approximately ½ cup of sugar, more or less based on your preference
Ice cubes as desired and lemon/lime slices to garnish
- In a blender, combine 4 cups of water and sugar. Add in lemons and lime.
- Blend until the citrus fruits are completely blended and the mixture is smooth. There may be foam.
- Strain the lemonade and add the remaining 4 cups of water.
- Serve with ice and a sprig of mint if you wish.
