2 teaspoons grated lime zest (about 2 medium limes)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 medium limes)
1 1/2 teaspoons low-calorie sweetener
5 cups cold water
2 1/2 cups ice
4 lime slices (optional)
In a large pitcher, stir together the lime zest, lime juice, sweetener, and water until the sweetener is dissolved.
Refrigerate the limeade for several hours before serving to chill and allow the lime zest to infuse the water.
When ready to serve, put the ice into glasses. Pour one cup limeade into each glass.
Garnish with the lime slices.
Cooking Tip: To easily get juice from a lime, microwave it on 100% power (high) for 10 to 20 seconds, or until just warmed. Alternatively, roll the lime back and forth on a cutting board under the palm on your hand.
Tip: For your next summer party or gathering, make a batch of limeade with a fun, attractive presentation. Put a fresh raspberry, blueberry, or small, edible flower in each compartment of an ice cube tray. Gently fill the tray with water. Freeze it. When ready to serve the limeade, add the decorative ice cubes to the glasses.
Tip: If you have fruit, such as berries, pineapple, or mango, you can add it to the limeade for extra flavor. Using a muddler or wooden spoon, gently mash about 1/4 cup fruit in a small bowl or mug. Add to the pitcher with the limeade. Stir well to combine.
