Cinco de Mayo Celebration
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.
