Limeade (and recipe)

With temps in the 70’s and 80’s, it’s time for one of my favorite warm weather beverages….Limeade. I usually use the Martha Stewart recipe which is also in her cookbook: Martha Stewart Living: The New Classics. Last week Caputo’s had limes on sale 10/$1 which I thought was a pretty good deal. I was wrong. This week, limes were 15/$1 so I bought 30 limes. The cashier gave me an odd look when she asked how many limes and I replied 30. I guess she doesn’t make her own limeade. What a weirdo.


1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice. plus lime wedges for garnish (14 to 16 limes total)


Heat the sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir together the lime juice and 5 cups water in a large pitcher, stir in the sugar syrup. Refrigerate until cold. Garnish each serving with a lime wedge.
