This is something similar to what I make on the regular. My friends know it as one of my trademark drinks, and call it "Ghetto Margaritas." Instead of using frozen limeade concentrate, I use a bottle of limeade (now becoming more and more popular- Simply Limeade is my preference), therefore eliminating the need for water. I mix equal parts white rum or white tequilla with the limeade. Whenever possible, I'll soak some strawberries in the alcohol for a few hours before adding the juice to add a little treat to the cocktail. WARNING: the acidity of limeade neutralizes alcohol taste- this can get you very drunk without you even knowing it- be careful! Read More

Wow--so refreshing...and you don't taste a trace of the alcohol. Just FYI- one ounce is equal to 2 tablespoons. I actually added 12 more ounces of water (use the juice concentrate container) another 1/2 cup of vodka fresh squeezed juice from 4 limes and 1/4 cup of sugar. I served this over the ice instead of blending it all together--sooo good. This is one of THE best alcoholic drinks I have ever had!! Great with Cuban or Mexican food. Read More

I skipped the water in this recipe and used Smirnoff lime vodka. I likes very much. I don't want to share it. Read More

My cocktail of record is a low cal version of this one: two fresh squeezed limes one packet of Splenda count to ten as you pour the gin and top off with water. Read More

My family has been making this since the 60's! We never add water -- it is also great with lemonade or pineapple concentrates! Alcohol is added to taste preference (of course)!! Read More

This is a great summer drink. I've made this for years and years and we use the Limeaid can to measure 6 ounces of Vodka and omit the water. When I was young my mother made these for neighborhood parties and she used just a can of water and omitted the Vodka for a batch for the kids to enjoy as well. Read More

Excellent. Love one reviewer's strawberry idea as I discovered early on that they taste great with this. I did add some fresh squeezed lime juice for a little extra flavor. Read More

As another reviewer suggested I use either Simply Limeaid or the mintue maid one. For me the lime is overpowering. But if you add just a small splash of orange juice it takes the bite out of the lime. The perfect drink. I also just use vodka limeaid and orange juice. Be very careful!!! You can make these drinks really strong and not taste the liquor! Read More
