Brazilian Lemonade

Brazilian lemons look and taste more like common limes, so this lemonade recipe does not call for lemons. The touch of sweetened condensed milk gives this drink a rich, subtle creaminess while the blender creates a frothy finish. This refreshing cooler, ideal on a hot summer day or as a tasty starter, is best served immediately as it becomes bitter tasting when made ahead of time.

CUT off ends of each lime and cut each into 8 wedges. Place 16 wedges, 3 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk and 7 ice cubes in blender. Cover; blend for 20 seconds. (Blending longer will cause drink to become bitter.) Strain through a fine mesh strainer into pitcher to remove rinds. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Best served immediately over ice cubes or crushed ice.

Looks great for a night out or at home.

I love limes so I tried this recipe out and my friend liked it more than I did. A quarter of the recipe is plenty for two people. It is a simple and refreshing drink.

Nice and smooth. A special drink for a warm summer evening.

This is a wonderful summer drink. Nice and refreshing. Instead of straining, I use a lime squeezer that is used for margaritas and saves time and flavor.

I wanted something different to drink and saw this, so I thought I would give it a try. My fiance was skeptical ("condensed milk as an ingrediant...I don't know"), but she loves this drink better than me. It is very refreshing.

The lemonade sounds good, but can't you cut the rind off so you do not have to strain it??
