This Classic Limeade recipe is simple, refreshing and a perfect base for countless drinks!
This is an easy refreshing drink to enjoy any time of the year, but especially in the summer. It is very refreshing and if you aren’t a fan of lemonade then you need to give this limeade recipe a try. I like both lemonade and limeade so it would be hard for me to just choose one. Surprisingly, my kids even like to drink this limeade and I think it’s because it’s not too sweet or too tart.
It’s also a good one to have in your back pocket as a base for numerous other drinks. Drinks like cherry limeade, limeade with mint, limeade mojito or a limeade margarita. The possibilities are endless.
