The Green Bottle at the Back of the Fridge

The one with lime juice in it that has been sitting there forever. Get that out. Or use fresh. Fresh is so much better. Not that I would know.

Honey Limeade
Yield: Makes about 2 quarts; 8 servings
From Sunset


  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup honey (using a light colored honey will make it prettier)
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 lime, rinsed


1. In a pitcher (at least 2-qt. capacity), stir lime juice and 1/4 cup honey until blended. Taste; if mixture is too tart, add up to 1/4 cup more honey. Add 5 cups water. Chill until cold, at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day.
2. Just before serving, add ice cubes. Thinly slice lime crosswise (discard ends), cut slices in half, and add to pitcher.
I mixed mine in the blender resulting in the foamy head in the picture.
