Soda-licious! (or not!) I reduced this by half, to make a quart and we all enjoyed it. Just right - not too tart or too sweet! 4 limes gave me 1/2 cup of juice, to make half the recipe. I did use a little warm water with the sugar, to speed the 'melting' process, adding cold water and ice, to fill. Thanks for sharing, -------.

I made the limeade and it was very good... a keeper! I added a whole tray of ice cubes to the pitcher at serving time and even after they had melted this was still strong enough tasting for me. I'll probably try a lemon/lime mixture in the future and also try adding some fruit slices or fruit juices to it sometime for fun.

This recipe is definitely easy, but it also tastes really good, too! I made it in a container with a lid so I can enjoy it at my own pace. I filled the container with 5 cups of room temperature water, added the sugar, stirred until dissolved, and then added the lime juice. I then added two cups of ice and drank a glass right away! Very nice! Thanks!
