The Most Extraordinary Fresh Limeade
This is the most extraordinary fresh limeade you'll taste. The only hard part about this drink is squeezing the juice from the limes, especially if you use key limes which have about a teaspoon of juice in each. You could also use lemons or regular Persian limes.
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup lime juice (or lemon juice), freshly squeezed
- zest from 1 lime (optional)
