Our drink catalogue is heaving with summer recipes, and just when we thought we couldn't squeeze in one more, TikTok stepped in yet again with a refreshing icy beverage: Brazilian limeade. The recipe is pretty straightforward to follow, which we love, and only calls for a handful of ingredients. Not to mention, it takes less than no time to make and can be blended in big batches, making it the perfect poolside pairing.
To whip up your own Brazilian limeade, chop five limes into eighths and toss into a blender along with 3/4 cups sugar, 1/2 condensed milk, and about four cups water. Blend until all ingredients are fully incorporated, especially the lime peels as they contain a majority of the lime flavouring. Next, separate your liquid mixture from any remaining lime pieces by pouring the blend over a strainer. Place the drink blend back into the blender with three cups water. After a few seconds of blending, pour over ice, stir, sip, and enjoy!
Ahead, see how others are making and garnishing their own Brazilian limeades at home. And if you're looking to make yours a little boozy, add a shot of your favourite liquor — we hear rum tastes best!
