I'm actually surprised I can type right now, after the alteration I made to this recipe. Instead of 3 cups water, I used 1 cup rum, 1 cup coconut water, and 1 cup water. Yowza! Lip-smackin, buzzed-before-you-know-it goodness. Saúde!

would have given this 4 stars, but it is much too gritty and very hard to strain. this works much better if you blend only the sugar water and lime first then strain it (multiple times) with a very very fine strainer; this way you strain the lime peels, not the milk froth, and you don't loose the small chunks of ice. the proportions of this recipe were pretty much perfect though.

DON'T PEEL THE LIMES. The peel contains all of the essential oils of the lime. It gives it that extra kick. Yes, it's a pain to strain it, but trust me, you'll be glad you did. I made this for a party and then added some vodka for some Brazilian Limeade Martini's. HUGE hit!

My husband and I just loved this lemonade. It is really a limeade and the taste is out of this world. It's really quick to make and would be great to make up for a barbecue or other summer party. Don't make more than you can drink in a few hours though. As the recipe indicates it doesn't keep well overnight. Definitely my favorite blender drink!

Very yummy! The milk makes it nice and frothy. It was a little too sweet for me though so next time I will try it with less sugar and/or a little more water. A very nice unique summer drink. One year later - STILL a definite favorite, just a note I thought I should add is to be cautious about making it too far in advance from when you intend to serve it, after a few hours it goes quite bitter so serve right away.
