With the Olympics in full swing, we have been spending some time learning about the country Brazil. As with all of our country unit studies, we like to try some food from the country we are studying. While looking for some nice and easy Brazilian recipes, we came across one for Brazilian Lemonade.
When the boys first saw this drink, they were like… “What are you trying to feed us now?” but once they had a taste, they were asking for more.
This drink really tasted cool and refreshing and a lot like the bottled lemonade you get from the shop. It is best served immediately over ice.
We find that most lemonades that you buy from the shop are quite sweet, but lime peel seems to add a little bit of bitterness which makes this drink so yummy and refreshing. It is a great drink to help you cool down on a hot day!
- 4 limes
- 1 cup white sugar
- 6 TBSP condensed milk
- 6 cups water
- Wash the limes thoroughly.
- Cut the ends of the limes and throw away.
- Cut the rest of the lime into 8 wedges.
- Place the lime wedges, sugar, condensed milk and water into a blender.
- Blend until the limes are blended into small pieces.
- Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a jug to remove the rinds.
- Serve over ice immediately.
