I used to work at Tucanos, and this is the authentic recipe for their signature beverage. Try it as is, or try it with other fruit juices mixed in.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place sugar, limes, sweetened condensed milk, and 2 cups of water in a blender. Pulse for 3 seconds, then pass through a strainer and add remaining 4 cups of water. Enjoy!

I made this tonight for dinner. I cheated and used the juicer and included raspberries. It was awesome!!!

I made this for Mother's Day and it was a hit! My boys think I am magic or something!

Drinks like agua de limon and lemonade are regular requests in my house, and I really loved how much easier it is to blend the whole limes and strain the mixture, rather than squeeze a bazillion little fresh limes for juice like I usually do! I enjoyed it as-is, but I suspect that it would be just as good with less than 2 cups of sugar in it. I was a little worried that this would be bitter because of the lime peels, but nope, it came out just fine. This was a perfect refreshment for the recent "summer in spring" weather we've been having lately, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
