Figgy's Amazing Honduran Limeade (Non-Alcoholic!)

Cut 6 persian limes into quarters, and place in a blender with sugar and a bit of water. Pulse the blender some 4 or 5 times, enough to crush the limes but not shred them. Run the mix through a colander into a pitcher, crushing the limes so that you get all the juice out. Add sugar and water until you get it just right. Add crushed ice, as it's best served really, really cold.


  1. Well, I think that last one is from Figgy. What with it being Figgy's name in the recipe title.

    1. Can't get anything past you, can we? :)

  2. Holy Godtopus, that Mango Sangria sounds AMAZING.

    Also, that Limeade goes AMAZING with gin.
