Brazilian Lemonade; Mocktails and Lemonade

Brazilian Lemonade

Okay, technically, this one's more of a limeade, but don't let the translation specifics stop you from trying out this gorgeous and unique refresher. Thanks to an infusion of sweetened condensed milk, which gives it a creamy texture and subtle sweetness, this one's a springtime stunner. Let's make it:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  3. Blend the mixture on high speed for about 30 seconds or until everything is well combined and frothy.
