DSC03537I love spring. I love the bright colors as flowers and trees burst into bloom. Right now our yard is full of yellow as the forsythia and the daffodils are making their appearance for the season. I also love the hints of summer that make their way into spring.
Limeade is one of my favorite summer drinks. I usually have a stash of the frozen stuff around, but this evening I wanted limeade with dinner and it's too early in the season for the frozen stash. So - a cooking I will go. Or more appropriately, a mixing.
I had a bottle of key lime juice in my fridge. I knew it would need sugar and water and little more. Since I'm not a fan of getting sugar to dissolve in cold water, I made a syrup from the lime and sugar, then added the cold water. The result, a refreshing limeade that's not too strong and not too tart. I'm looking forward to blending fresh strawberries and cherries with it when their seasons come around!


2 cups Granulated Sugar
1 cup Lime Juice
1 gallon of Water

1. Combine the lime juice and sugar in a saucepan over low heat just until the sugar melts.
2. Mix with water.
3. Add ice if desired and enjoy.
