His wife is an amazing cook and on top of the seafood soup, braised beef tacos, two salsas, and an entire separate three-course meal for the kids, she made two types of agua fresca, lime and mango. The mango was sweet, thick and luscious and the lime was zingy, tart, refreshing—we downed the entire pitcher upon arrival.
As I watched her make another round I thought to myself, I am never squeezing lemons for lemonade again. It was ridiculously easy, and so much better. She cut the limes into small pieces and put them in the blender skin and all.
- 2 large limes, washed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3 cups ice water
- Cut limes into sixths and put in a blender, peel and all, with the sugar and ice water. Blend until peel is completely pulverized. Strain into a pitcher and serve over ice.
