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.
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 cups limes, quartered (including the peel)
- 6 cups water
- 2 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 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
