Summer Strawberry Limeade

This morning I went with mom out to Costco and came back with, among other things, a 5 lb bag of limes. We had a mini mountain of limes in our kitchen.  Tragic?  Not nearly.  We did need to figure out something to do with at least a few of them though- they didn't all fit in their bowl.  So mom suggested strawberry limeade, to which I wholeheartedly agreed.  I found this recipe, which looked excellent, tweaked it a bit, and voila! strawberry limeade.  It goes excellently with a light lunch and some summer sun.

Oh, and we still had a mini mountain of limes left over afterwards.


Summer Strawberry Limeade

1 1/2 cups strawberries, quartered
1 cup lime juice
5 cups water
3/4 cups sugar

Blend strawberries and lime juice together in a blender.  Pour into pitcher with 4 cups cold water and ice.  Heat 1 cup water with the sugar in microwave or stovetop, stirring often, until sugar has dissolved.  Add to pitcher.  Add extra lime or strawberry slices if desired.
