166: Latin Limeade

It was 9pm on June 30, and I needed to make another recipe to make 30 recipes during the month of June. I’d planned on making something else as Recipe #166, but I didn’t have enough of an integral ingredient for it.

I wasn’t really in the mood to bake anyway, so I looked around for beverages, and decided to make Latin Limeade.

This was basically a limeade made with brown sugar instead of white granulated sugar. It’s something that I wouldn’t have thought about doing.  It was also pleasantly simple, since I didn’t feel like doing anything complicated. I mixed 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/2 cup water, and 1 cup ice together in a glass.

It was pretty good, although I don’t drink limeade very often so I can’t say that it’s better than or not as good as regular limeade. It would have been better with fresh lime juice rather than bottled, but that would have made it a little more complicated. This beverage was refreshing. I enjoyed this enough that I’d make it again.
