Sweet & Salt Limeade | Limeade Recipe

Limeade , a humble & refreshing drink that quench your thirst on this hot summer afternoons. Back in India, i always use lemons to make juice on summer days,but never used limes once and i couldn't remember seeing them on markets too. Don't know whether limes are not available as much as lemons or i didn't pay much attention to the varieties back then. 

But here in US, limeade drinks are quite popular and it occupies most of the juice section in our grocery store on this summer days. So out of curiosity, we bought one few weeks before and it was so refreshing and we love the flavor so much.The flavor was quite similar to "Narthangai"(a citron used to make pickles in Tamilnadu) with sweet taste.So later on every visit to grocery store, i never forget to pick lime.As we both like lemon juice with sugar & salt, i just recreate the same with lime. It's so refreshing & tasty and leaves you wanting more.

When serving, add few lime slices, mint and ice cubes.
  • I have prepared excess sugar syrup and put in refrigerator for later use.
  • Depends on the sourness of the lime, you may need more or less sugar syrup,so always prepare little extra sugar syrup and you can store the leftover in refrigerator for later use.
  • Salt really helps to bring out the sweetness and balance the taste.
