My last post was a bit of a bummer. Let's have a drink!
I like lemonade just fine, but limes give it extra depth. But straight limeade is a bit much for me. There's a balance.
I added a full tray of ice cubes and enough water to bring it up to six cups and let it sit in the fridge. It's not super sweet, it's pretty tart and it's refreshing.
But what's better is pouring 4oz of this into a glass with a shot or a shot and a half of vodka.
*I'd like to announce that I'm literate. One might not know that from the series of edits I had to make to get the word "is" into the proper spot in the above sentence. And I didn't even have any spiked lemon/limeade today!*
Agave Lemon/Limeade - spiked or not
Refreshing and tart with a decent balance of sweet.
- juice of 2 Lemons
- juice of 3 Limes
- 1/4 cup Agave nectar
- plenty of Ice
- about 5 cups Cold water
- zest of 1 Lemon
- 1.5 oz vodka (optional) per serving
Squeeze fruit over a strainer into a pitcher. Stir in agave and zest. Add a tray of ice and enough water to make 6 cups.Optionally - *Optimally* - add 1.5 oz of vodka to a 4 oz glass of lemon/limeade. Serve very cold.
