It is called “lemonade,” but there are no lemons in it – just limes. Brazilian Lemonade sounds backward. Don’t ask me why – I haven’t the cloudiest idea why they name it Lemonade! A sweet and easy cocktail, Hard Brazilian Limeade is sweet, tangy, and crazy refreshing made with sweetened condensed milk and served over ice with plenty of rum! Brazilian Lemonade. The secret ingredient that makes it creamy will have you pouring glass after glass of this refreshing drink. Perfect for hot summer days, the family gets together. It’s a drink that many can enjoy; you can have alcohol and drink it mocktail style. Below you will see I added rum. This recipe will serve six people.
4 juicy limes, washed and scrubbed clean
6 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 ½ cup Of White Rum
Mix cold water and sugar. Chill until ready to use.
Wash limes thoroughly. Cut off ends and then cut each lime into eighths.
Place half the limes and half the water/sugar mixture in a blender. Pulse 5x. Strain into pitcher with a fine mesh sieve. Dump pulp in trash. Repeat with other half of limes and water/sugar mixture.
Add ice and condensed milk and rum right before serving. Stir and enjoy.
Best if made fresh (just before serving). DO NOT attempt to blend the whole recipe at once unless you have a LARGE blender like I do.
