BY THALITA Get in touch with your Brazilian side with this delicious and refreshing cocktail that my Brazilian family has been making for as long as I can remember. It’s the perfect easy Summer drink to make for guests or just for hanging around the backyard. BRAZILIAN LEMONADE 4 limes and/or lemons 6 cups of water 1 cup of sugar ½ can of condensed milk Ice
INSTRUCTIONS Start by mixing the water and sugar together until all of the sugar dissolves. You can keep this ready in the fridge until you actually need it to save some time — the rest is best made just before serving. Wash all of the limes thoroughly because they will be used in their entirety for the drink. Cut off the ends and cut the limes into eighths. In a blender, add half of the limes and sugar water. Pulse until you have a lime smoothie-like consistency. Strain the mixture into a pitcher through a fine mesh strainer and repeat with the second half. Mix in condensed milk, add ice and you’re done!
