To celebrate the Rio Olympics, here is a drink called Brazilian lemonade. Interestingly, there is no lemon in this lemonade, but there's a lot of limes!
I love the Olympics, and although I've been at the medical ICU, I've been watching it nonstop. We hooked up our TV finally! While there's certainly been a fair amount of controversy on Rio Olympics, it's nice to honor all the athletes on their big competition and have a little world unity.
I first had this drink in a Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao, and I've been hooked. The condensed milk and limes is like a refreshing key lime pie in drink form - lighter and perfect for hot summer days (or hiding indoors and watching the Summer Olympics). Adapted from Natasha's Kitchen.
1 cup cold water
1 cup ice
granulated sugar, to taste
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 lime zest
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
Add water, ice, sugar, lime juice and lime zest into your blender. Add 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk. Blend until smooth and frothy. Add water, ice and lime to adjust thickness and sugar to adjust sweetness to desired level. Serve with lime slices and enjoy!
