Refreshing Honey Limeade

Refreshing Honey Limeade

Posted by Sharona Lomberg on

 

Last week we had a tremendous windstorm. Big gusts of wind blew down branches of our huge lime tree laden with the plump, green fruit. What to do? Make Honey Limeade of course! Limeade makes a perfect drink for a summer barbeque on the 4th of July. It can be served straight over ice or spiked with rum or vodka for a refreshing cocktail.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup Lehua honey
  • 5 cups water/divided
  • 1 lime sliced

Directions:

  1. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Take off heat and stir in the Lehua honey. (To keep the honey raw, let the hot water sit for a few minutes before stirring in the honey.)
  2. Once cool, mix honey water, lime juice, and remaining water in a large pitcher.
  3. Add sliced lime for garnishment.
  4. Put pitcher in refrigerator to cool.
  5. Serve over ice.
  6. Add rum or vodka if you want an extra kick.
