Hubby and I LOVE Fogo De Chao it's up there as probably the #1 fancy restaurant right now...so good...it's a Brazilian place and they have this amazing lemonade. Thing is though..it's not 'lemon'...it's lime. I love it so much that I really don't care what they call it...as long as they keep making it. And now thanks to a new blog I found -I can make it at home!
1 lime, cut into eight pieces
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of ice
1 cup of water
3/4 cup of lemon-lime beverage
Take your first 5 ingredients, put them in a blender and blend ( I got until I can't hear any ice)-then strain the mixture into a measuring cup to remove the rind.
Now the original recipe says this is a two serving deal..I'm calling mine a one serving!
Pour 3/4 cup of lemon-lime beverage (*cough*Sprite*cough*) into a glass, add about 4 cubes of ice and pour over the 'mix'..give it a mix with a spoon...and take a long, smooth, drink of summery bliss.
Oh..and check out my little helper's new cooking-wear! (get wear..since she's wearing it?)
