I don't make a lot of "drinks", so you probably won't ever see very many on my blog. With my meals, I prefer water and if I ever do need something to quench-my-thirst, I love Tropical Punch Kool-Aid - It is my favorite, but when I saw this Brazilian Lemonade, I knew I had to give it a try. Afterall, I did have a lot of limes, because my grocery store was out of single-limes, so I had to buy a big bag!
The recipe is interesting, because you use the entire lime, not just the lime juice and zest. The recipe recommends serving immediately and states that it does not keep very well. I made a batch early one Sunday morning and drank an entire glass immediately and I liked it. It is limey and refreshing. A few hours later, I poured myself another glass and it had a strange taste to it? So, follow the instructions and serve immediately. Don't make extra, planning to have leftover, because it will not taste nearly as good. I have never had the Brazilian Lemonade at Tucanos, so I have no idea how this compares.
