I personally prefer less water and replace it with a can of beer. Read More

Limey luscious sweet but still tart and NOT FROZEN! This is perfect--I didn't add salt or extra lime but some of my guests did (also scaled back the water. Next time I will turbo charge the flavor--omit the water and use light beer. To make it sweeter substitute the water for lemon lime soda. Read More

I cut back the water by one "can". I think it could have been cut back by another "can" and been perfect. I will try that next time and re-review. As is my husband drank the whole pitcher in a couple hours. NOTE: Keep the pitcher in the fridge to keep the ice from melting as fast. Read More

Quick easy tastes great. I have made this for years and love the author's choice of name for her recipe? I prefer this recipe when I add juice from 1 fresh squeezed lime and cut back water to 2 cans but I have made it both ways and it's always a big hit. Depends on my guests preferences many people prefer the lighter version with more water as written. Read More

I make these regularly, but you should note that different brands of limeade contain different amounts of lime juice, which may be why some people use less water. The cans of limeade I've found contain between 11 and 14% lime juice. It makes a big difference. Read More
