The bag of a dozen limes made slightly more than a cup of fresh squeezed lime juice. (Which tastes about like you think it does.)
Mixing the lime juice and the simple syrup. (I used 1:1 proportions, which is a much higher ratio of lime juice to sweetener than most recipes call for, but I like it quite tart.)
Shaking them up to make the concentrate.
Mixing it with water. I cut it about 2:3 limeade-to-water, which again is stronger than most recipes call for.
The finished product. Mmmm. The pitcher was a Christmas present from Mother of the Child.
And my special limeade glass, a handmade Christmas present from the_child.
