Brazilian Lemonade


One of my favorite drinks. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

INGREDIENTS
1 c. sugar
6 c. cold water
4 limes
6 T. sweetened condensed milk
Ice

DIRECTIONS
Mix water and sugar well and chill until ready to use.  Wash limes thoroughly with soap. You will be using the whole lime so you need to make sure they are nice and clean. Cut the ends off the limes and then cut each lime into smaller pieces. Place half of the limes into a blender. Add half of the sugar water and pulse 5-6 times.

Place a fine-mesh strainer over a pitcher and pour the blended mixture through the strainer and into the pitcher. Use a spoon to press the rest of the liquid into the pitcher. Dump the remaining pulp from the strainer into the trash. Repeat this process with the remaining limes and sugar water.

Use a whisk to add sweetened condensed milk to the pitcher. Serve immediately over ice.

*This drink does not keep well so don't mix in the blender until you are ready to serve.
