Cooking Tip: Limonado
For those in the States pining for a taste of real Mexico, I recommend the following beverage:
1 tumbler full of water, mineral water, or ginger ale
3 fresh limon (mini limes) or 1 large regular sized lime
That's it. Put it together. Drink it. No tricks.
Now for the cooking tip. I found this idea in Kay's cruising cookbook, and I endorse it highly. When you are either land bound and find cheap limes or provisioning for a long stretch, you can make limonada concentrate. Kay's recommended ratios are:
2 cups fresh squeeze lime juice
2 cups sugar
1 cups water
Next time we make it, I'm going to toss it into the bottom of the freezer and not pull it out until the girls and DrC have blown through all the fresh food on the boat. That'll show em.
