Stretching A Dollar Into A Pitcher: Fresh Squeezed Limeade

Fact: few things are as delicious and refreshing on a warm afternoon then freshly squeezed fruit juice. To celebrate the thermometer finally surging into the 70s, Ira decided to pull out the citrus reamer and make an ice cold pitcher to sip on our stoop.

Our neighborhood bodegas usually limes for 10 cents a piece, so we were able to whip this delicious drink up for only $1.00. Now that’s making the most of a dollar!

Freshly Squeezed Limeade

  • 10 limes, juiced
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 8 c. water
  • ice

Squeeze limes. We have this handy dandy 2:1 lemon and lime squeezer which is awesome and easy to use. A wooden reamer works great too, but if you don’t have any of these just use a fork.

Add sugar. This drink has ALOT of sugar, but who cares about our teeth on a day like today. We just want to drink a delicious beverage. So don’t worry about it, and just mix that shit in.

Add ice and water. Stir it up. Keep adding water until the taste is just the way you like it.

Drink up and taste the summer. Now that’s crescent fresh!
