Weekends are a time to kick back, sit on the deck, and sip some lemonade or limeade with friends and family.
The only hard part about this drink is squeezing the juice from the limes. This time, I used key limes which have about a teaspoon of juice in each, so I was squeezing for awhile. You could also use lemons or regular Persian limes.
Key limes are smaller than regular limes. They are a lighter green (yellow when ripe), thinner-skinned, and more tart than a regular lime.
Recipe for The Most Extraordinary Fresh Limeade
Melt water and sugar until it boils. Remove from heat and cool. Stir in the freshly squeezed lime juice. Chill.
In a glass, pour 1 cup lime juice mixture and 1 cup water. Serve with ice.
