Brazilian Lemonade | Brazilian Limeade



One of the revelations of the quarantine time cooking, apart from the Dalgona coffee – is it any different from our Indian style cappucino, except in its presentation? – was this Brazilian Lemonade. Please don’t ask me why it is called lemonade when it uses limes. Actually let me tell you a secret – I thought every drink that had the citrus cousins was a lemonade. It was only very recently I realized that what uses a lemon is a lemonade and the drink that uses the lime (something more readily available here) is the limeade. OK, so if you are knowing that for the first time, I have taught you something new… πŸ˜‰


Another interesting fact is that this drink is also called “Swiss Lemonade”, despite having its origins from Brazil. How cool is that! πŸ˜€ This lemonade is different from all the recipes you have seen in your life, with the use of condensed milk to sweeten it. Yes, the condensed milk adds such richness to the drink. If you are having impromptu guests, then this can be a drink that you can make to wow them, just because of its uniqueness. As with every milk-citrus combination – like this Tang Milk, do make sure that it is served almost immediately in order to avoid it from curdling.


So this one is the third recipe in the three back-to-back lemonade series, the others being the Flavored Lemonade and the Watermelon Rose Limeade. Hope you enjoyed this series and make some at home before the summer disappears… πŸ™‚

    Wow that Brazalian lemonade is interesting. I am surprised about using milk okay condensed milk but milk. I would have assumed the milk will split. Must try but can I use lemons we get . I don’t think we get like.
