Here is another great refreshing summer drink. I made this for one of our 'blue park' parties. I was a little skeptical when my friend Allison sent this recipe to me, one of the ingredients was.....well, a bit different, one might even say odd. However if anyone knows what they are talking about when it comes to cocktails, it would be Allison.
4 small limes
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold water
¼ cup sweetened condensed milk (yes, you read that correctly)
Mix cold water and sugar together very well.
Make sure to wash you limes well! Cut the ends of the limes off, and then cut the limes into 8ths. Put limes and sugar water in blender. Pulse you blender 5 times. Place a fine strainer over a pitcher and pour the blended mixtures through the strainer into the pitcher. Discard the limes. Add sweetened condensed milk & mix well. Taste it at this point…if it is a little too bitter, add a little more sweetened condensed milk.
That is the kid version….which is fabulous, but to make the even more fabulous adult version add 1 cup of good vodka or rum! Oh baby…I had people coming back on Saturday for more of these bad boys.
Now, before you ask....I have no idea why they call this 'lemonade' when it is made with limes.
