First making an appearance in Egypt, we have been sipping on refreshing lemonade for thousands of years. Depending on what part of the world you live in, you will likely be familiar with either clear or cloudy lemonade. Here in the U.S., we are mostly familiar with the cloudy version.Years of substituting and swapping ingredients has provided us with an array of -ades. Orangeade, limeade, and cherry limeade represent a handful of citrusy blends now readily available for imbibing.
Digging through the chaos of our produce drawer, Warren questioned how many limes I thought we would need to make salsa. Begging the question, his only conclusion was how much I needed limeade on a sweltering Saturday in Tennessee.
His suspicion may have been a bit off target, and I may have never had a childhood lemonade stand, but something made me giddy as I watched him swirling up a limenado. Limeadeo?
A snappy bite of lime playfully mingles with a subtle basil-jalapeño simple syrup, resulting in a refresher for a balmy afternoon. When life gives you limes, make limeade. Hard Limeade.
