How To Make A Simple Syrup
- First you want to make a simple syrup – equal parts sugar and water.
- Heat on your stove top just until the sugar is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and let cool
- Next you want to juice your limes. I don’t have a fancy juicer or citrus juicer, so I use my good ol’ fashion lemon press.
- You’ll need 8 to 12 limes depending on the size. You just want to squeeze about a cup and a half of juice.
Tip: If you roll your limes across the counter with a little muscle they will produce more juice.
How To Make Your Brazilian Limeade Base

The Secret Ingredient For Brazilian Limeade
Here’s an insider hack – while I LOVE love love making this from scratch – when I’m in a pinch, sometimes I’ll buy a bottle of Simply Limeade and combine it with a can of sweetened condensed milk. It produces a similar flavor in a fraction of the time. So on a day when you’re feeling fancy – make it from scratch. In a hurry – store bought all the way.
