      We enjoyed the limeade on this hot summer afternoon. I made it with about 6 large limes, sugar, and sparkling water. It was a nice combination between sweet and sour.

      Rick Bayless is one of my favorites, as well. This limeade turned out very good, and was worth the tedium of juicing the limes. I used honey instead of sugar because it dissolves faster.
