Frothy Brazilian Lemonade

Traditional Brazilian Lemonade is made with limes (limes are more plentiful there). As delicious as that is, we added lemon with the lime for an extra robust citrus flavor. Skip the seltzer if you like but we’re fond of the additional froth. This also makes a nice mixer for adult cocktails.

Ingredients

  • 2 small limes*
  • 1 large lemon*
  • ⅓ cup condensed milk (we used coconut condensed milk)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • About 2 cups ice water (3 if not using seltzer)
  • Lime seltzer 
  • Slices of lemon and lime for garnish

Directions

  1. Wash fruit and cut into small pieces, making sure to remove seeds from lemon and white pith in the center.

  2. Combine in blender with milk, sugar and honey. Add the cold water to blend, no more than 30 seconds. Strain out pulp. Add more water if not using seltzer. Taste and add a bit more honey or milk if needed as fruits will vary in juiciness and tartness.

  3. Pour over crushed ice and top with about a cup of seltzer water per serving, if using. Garnish with lemon and lime slices.

  4. Serve immediately as mixture will become bitter after sitting, due to pith.

*Fruits with thinner smooth skin will be sweeter and juicier.
