My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Homemade Limeade

Homemade Limeade

Every since I made my first homemade Fresh Lemonade, all I see are endless possibilities with flavor combos!  It evolved when I made my Strawberry Basil Lemonade and I haven't looked back!  There is something so satisfying about make something refreshing and delicious.  They are actually really easy to make and truly do taste so much better than any powder or drink you can get pre-made from the store.  

When it comes to Limeade, I feel the same way!  It's become a new favorite of mine lately.

If you've never tried it, then it's a must!  It's a little more tart than lemonade, but seems a little bit more tropical all at the same time.  Perfectly refreshing, though.

Since limes are usually small, I like to use them as my ice cubes instead of diluting the limeade with any ice.  You just cut some in half, pop them into the freezer and let them harden.  They'll look great floating in your drink and keep it cold at the same time!
