This great recipe for still 'lemonade' actually uses limes. You may prefer to finely grate the lime rind into the blender and cut off any remaining pith before blending the whole limes. It is best served immediately.
I'm actually surprised I can type right now, after the alteration I made to this recipe. Instead of 3 cups water, I used 1 cup rum, 1 cup coconut water, and 1 cup water. Yowza! Lip-smackin, buzzed-before-you-know-it goodness. Saúde! - 31 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
DON'T PEEL THE LIMES. The peel contains all of the essential oils of the lime. It gives it that extra kick. Yes, it's a pain to strain it, but trust me, you'll be glad you did. I made this for a party and then added some vodka for some Brazilian Limeade Martini's. HUGE hit! - 23 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
would have given this 4 stars, but it is much too gritty and very hard to strain. this works much better if you blend only the sugar water and lime first then strain it (multiple times) with a very very fine strainer; this way you strain the lime peels, not the milk froth, and you don't loose the small chunks of ice. the proportions of this recipe were pretty much perfect though. - 15 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
