• • 2 limes, quartered and any seeds removed
  • • 8 cups of cold water
  • • Approximately ½ cup of sugar, more or less based on your preference
  • • Ice cubes as desired and lemon/lime slices to garnish


  1. Place the quartered limes or lemons in the blender with 4 cups of water and sugar.
  2. Blend until the limes or lemon is completely pulverized, the mixture should be slightly foamy with a whitish color.
  3. Strain the lemonade and add the remaining 4 cups of water.
  4. Serve with or without ice based on individual preference.

Yes, you blend the whole limes/lemons, skin and all. It does get bitter quickly, so drink it the same day you make it.
