This recipe from Southern Living made great limeade, though at current lime prices I’m not sure it’s worth it.


1/2 c water
1 c sugar
1 tbsp grated lime rind (about 2 limes)
1 1/2 c fresh lime juice (about 12 limes)
7 c ice water


Grate the rinds and squeeze out the lime juice. Fill a pitcher with 7 c ice water. Bring 1/2 c water to boil in a small saucepan, then take it off the heat, add the sugar and rinds, and stir until dissolved to make a simple syrup. Add the simple syrup and lime juice to the pitcher and stir.
