I married a man who was born in Brasil. He introduced me to Limonada Suiça. And that is one of the reasons I love him dearly. Maybe you’ve had this drink at a Brasilian Churrascaria. If you haven’t, find one fast, you won’t regret it.
To make traditional Limonada Suiça, I usually throw some whole limes into the blender, strain it, and add a can of sweetened condensed milk. I like it icy cold. I experimented with limeade concentrate, which has the same bitter flavor as the fresh whole limes my traditional recipe, to make a slushy version for a luncheon I went to a little while ago. I can’t get enough of this.
I do love limes so much, you see.
Fizzy Limonada Suiça
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 can sweetened condensed milk
whole milk (enough to fill empty limeade can one time)
sparkling water/lemon-lime soda (more or less depending on how many servings you want)
Mix limeade concentrate, s.c. milk, and whole milk together. Freeze. (Sometimes I use my ice cream maker if I need it in a hurry.)
When ready to serve, either scoop the frozen limonada into individual glasses, or fill a punch bowl with the entire amount. Pour sparkling water or soda into each glass or into the punch bowl. Either mix together until slushy, or serve as a “float.”
**You can stretch the recipe by adding more milk or using more bottles of soda.
