    • MAKES 1 jug limeade (8-10 cups)
    • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice* (about 5 medium to large limes)
    • 7-8 cups water
    • 1 cup white sugar (or more to taste)
    • Optional: ice cubes / fresh fruit garnish

    1. Squeeze the limes to make 1 cup lime juice, either by hand (slicing the limes into wedges and squeezing them), or by using a citrus juicer/press. Remove any small seeds you find.
    2. Pour the lime juice into a large jug, and add 7 cups water.
    3. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
    4. Taste-test the lime water, adding more sugar if you prefer it sweeter, or more water if you find the taste too strong or sharp. Set jug in the re-frigerator to chill for 2 hours, or until cold.
    5. Serve as is, or garnished with slices or wedges of lime, plus a few ice cubes if desired. ENJOY!

    SIDE NOTE: Feel free to add vodka!!

    Make this in the morning in a large pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. The flavors get better with a few hours to meld. I'm not picky about the wines I use. I grabbed whatever bottles happened to be open on my counter at the time. Use whatever you like, but don't spend a fortune.
    Start to finish: 5 minutes
    Makes 8 servings
    2 cups rose wine
    2 cups red wine
    2 cups peach juice
    1/2 cup lime juice
    1/3 cup orange liqueur
    1/3 cup rum
    1/2 cup superfine sugar
    1. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Refrigerate for several hours, then serve over ice.
