This sweet rum limeade is one of my favorite recent drinks I’ve concocted. I have been seeing Brazilian lemonade all over Tik Tok lately and have been wanting to try it, but I was in the mood for something easy that didn’t require a blender, so I put together this basic three ingredient cocktail instead.
Rum limeade, for two: 3 oz dark rum (or rum of choice — not flavored or spiced) Juice of two large limes Two tablespoons sweetened condensed milk Shake all ingredients vigorously over a full shaker of ice. Strain into two glasses. Enjoy!
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
