Brazilian ‘Lemonade’

Summer heat got you feeling a little wilted? This simple and refreshing drink is a fast, easy, and delicious way to cool down!

To make your own Brazilian Lemonade you will need:

  • 6 cups cold water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice*
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • Lime wedge, for garnish
  • Ice
  • Rum**

Immersion blender option:

In a large jug combine your 6 cups of cold water with your sugar, lime juice, condensed milk and zest.

Using an immersion blender, blend all your ingredients until frothy and well combined.

Pour over ice, garnish with your lime slice, and serve immediately.

Blended Ice version:

In your blender, combine your 6 cups of cold water with your sugar, lime juice, condensed milk, zest and ice.  Pulse blend all your ingredients until the ice is completely crushed and you end up with a smooth, foamy, well combined blended ice drink.  Garnish with your lime slice, and serve immediately.

*For my version I used a combination of Tahiti limes and key limes, which resulted in a slightly yellower drink.  Tahiti limes, also sometimes called Persian limes, are the most common limes you can purchase at the grocery store. If you option to use only the Tahiti limes, your resulting drink will be a much lighter color…almost white.

**Rum is an optional ingredient in this drink. It is absolutely delicious without it but at the same time, I can say a little rum in this drink will more than get you into the tropical vacation mood.  It’s Churro Burro approved.

Eat well!
