Brazilian lemonade

Brazilian lemonade recipe

This is a tangy adaptation of a classic Brazilian cocktail made with Brazilian lemons, which are more similar in look and taste to limes in the United States. Just add your favorite tequila to a mixture of fresh lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, sugar and water. Serve the frothy cocktail over ice or blend it with ice for a sweet summertime slushy made for sipping.

Yield: 4 to 6 cocktails
