The first one is called Swiss lemonade and comes from Brazil.
The second is a frozen lime drink from Peru.
Both are easy to make and are great heading into the hot summer weather.
4 cups water
Sugar to taste
Cut the lime in halves and each halve into quarters.
Combine 2 cups of water with the lime quarter in a blender.
Beat for only 3 seconds. If you beat for a longer time, the lemonade will become bitter.
Pour the liquid through a strainer and add more 2 cups of water with ice and sugar to taste.
To make a slushy add more ice and blend again. We have made this a fair bit over summer, it is quick and easy and refreshing.
