The other day I had a craving for limes. Since it was so hot and humid out I decided to make some Limeade. While making it I noticed I had some Club Soda in my pantry so I decided I’d make what I call a Limeade Spritzer.
On a hot summer day this hits the spot. Add some fresh thin slices of lime to your glass and plenty of ice and it’s as cool and refreshing as it looks.
Of course here’s the recipe for you to enjoy as well.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
2 to 2 1/2 cups water
The key to making perfect limeade is to make a simple syrup which is just water with sugar dissolved in it.
First, start by adding one cup of water and one cup of sugar to a saucepan and bring to a boil. This assures you that the sugar won’t just stick to the bottom of the pitcher when making the limeade. While the simple syrup is cooling, juice the limes.
Now to a pitcher add the simple syrup, and the freshly squeezed lime juice. Next, add two to two-and-a-half cups of water depending on the tartness you like. Then add some lime slices and ice cubes.
In a glass add 1/2 Club Soda and 1/2 Limeade with some extra sliced limes to each glass as a garnish.
This Limeade Spritzer is a perfect refreshing summertime drink.
