Limeade Recipe


  • 6 Limes
  • 750 ml Boiling Water
  • 125 gms Castor Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Ice-Cubes
  • Lime wedges and Mint leaves to decorate


  1. Halve the limes then squeeze the juice into a large jug.
  2. Put the squeezed lime halves into another heatproof jug with the sugar and boiling water and leave to infuse for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the salt, give the infusion a good stir, then strain it into the jug holding the lime juice.
  4. Add half a dozen ice cubes in each glass and pour the limeade over.
  5. Add a lime wedge and a mint leaf to decorate.

Tip: As an alternative to block ice, prefreeze drinking water or juices in clean milk jugs. They’ll help keep foods cold and provide a handy source of cold beverages as they thaw.
