In my attempt to kick my Pepsi habit, I've been experimenting with fruit beverages this summer. Three shots of cranberry juice to a 16 ounce tumbler of water has gotten old, so I decided to try my hand at good old-fashioned home-made lemonade. I like mine strong and sour, so it doesn't taste watered down when the ice melts.
Shortly after I became fixated on lemonade, the price of lemons went up. Limes were 10 for a dollar in our local grocery, so the market decided that I would try limeade instead. David says the limeade has a more rounded citrus flavor than the lemon. Not only that, but when the citrus prices at the supermarket jumped, I found our local Hispanic markets still had reasonable prices on their limes.
