Brazilian Lemonade

My friend, Lisa, made this for us when we had a BBQ a couple weeks ago.  It seems like it would be too sweet but its actually really refreshing. You will not regret trying this!

5 limes
6 cups water
1 c sugar
6 Tbsp sweet and condensed milk

Juice limes and lightly zest skins into juice. (Most recipes have you grind the entire lime but Lisa was told that it made the batch bitter as time went on. With juicing and only using the zest it does not get bitter).

Mix with water and sugar. Right before serving stir in sweet condensed milk. Serve over ice.


  1. We love Brazilian limeade!! We use whole key limes and then strain it before serving. Maybe straining it wouldn't make it bitter?

  2. I totally wanted to name it a Brazilian Limeade, since it's made with limes. But, the recipe was given to me calling it a Lemonade... so I thought just stick with it! haha :) I've never tried it using the whole lime. It is fabulous this way though!! You'll have to try it this way and see if it makes a difference!
