New Favorites from Other Food Blogs – Summer Beverages

Print Friendly

For this July installment of my new favorite finds, I focused on refreshing summer beverages. Each of these are very easy to make and taste delicious on hot days.

  • Creamy Brazilian Limeade (From Our Home to Yours) – If you like creamy drinks, then give this a try. Fresh limes are sliced and blended with water with the rind on, then strained and blended with cream, sugar, and more water. Delectable! I’ve made it with half & half, whole milk, and evaporated milk to try to reduce calories. It tastes nicely rich with more fat, but if you are watching your waistline you can use a lower fat option.
  • Citronnade à la Menthe (Chocolate & Zucchini) – From Clothilde’s archives, this refreshing water is extremely easy, tasty, and sugar free.
  • Ice Tea with Lemon Granita (Love Sicily) – This one from Ronald’s archives is great for a hot day. As he says, you just mix together some lemon ice cubes, water ice cubes, and sugar in a blender. Spoon the mixture into glasses of cold tea and top it off with mint sprigs.

    Hi Andrea! Wow, I’m so glad you liked it! You can also try with sweetened condensed milk, then leave out sugar… even though it won’t be as creamy as the heavy cream. Actually I think you can find there “crema de leche” and that’s what I use here. That granita seems to be soo good! Thanks for the other links, will check them out!
