Part 2 : A half bottle lemon juice, a half bottle lime juice and a half bag of tortilla chips
I don't drink soft drinks or sweet drinks so I only occasionaly make a drink like lemonade but I was desparate. I really want to find a way to use up all the lemon and lime juice (in bottle) in my pantry so I decided to make one picher full for a nice sunny Sunday today. Lemonade is a very useful mixer afterall. You can mix it with iced-tea, vodka, gin and even beer. So if this batch is really tasty, the rest of the bottles will be gone by May for sure! And why not mix lemon juice and lime juice to make a Limonade?
While I was making my limonade, my husband insisted to make nachos with green chille dip to help me getting rid of some tortilla chips for my cleaning project.
Adapted from a lemonade recipe of Paula Deen
6 to 8 servings

1 cup hot water

1 cup fresh lime juice

Mint sprigs, for garnish
*I used bottled lemon and lime juice for my pantry cleaning project
In a 1 gallon container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice, lime juice and cold water to render 1 gallon. Stir until well mixed. Pour lemonade over glasses of ice, squeeze slice of lemon on top of each, and garnish with a sprig of mint.
