In our family, lemonade and limeade rank along with iced tea for cooling drinks. When our boys were growing up, we lived in the Dallas, Texas area where there were Braum’s restaurants noted for their great burgers and limeade. This is one of those copycat recipes for Braum’s limeade. Now, my granddaughters enjoy making tall glasses of the tangy stuff.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
cherry/cherry juice (optional)
Almost too easy to call a recipe – make a simple syrup by bringing 1 cup of water and a1 cup of sugar to a boil to dissolve sugar. Let cool.
Cut lime in half and press juice into glass. Add 1/4 cup simple syrup, club soda, and ice. Add cherries or cherry juice if you want a cherry limeade! Put lime rinds back into glass along with ice.
