This refreshing and zesty 'lime-ade' makes a great addition to a spicy Mexican meal. Believe it or not when you add the juice of a cucumber it is a whole new experience!

  • crushed ice

Very refreshing drink. Gotta tell you my 11-year-old grandson kept saying "Nana, you're the best lime drink maker" he just loved the stuff and made a second pitcher with my help so he'd know how to make it at home. ZWT3
