Limes and Summer

I don't know about your part of the world... but in Miami temperatures are rising and with them the need to find a refreshing drink that cools you down.


Lemonades and limeades have been the "go to" drinks of the summer season for as long as we all can remember. As a kid I didn't live in the kind of neighborhood where you could have a stand to sell them but we did have a lime tree and would make it all the time.


This drink is not only delicious but believe it or not there are some healthy benefits associated with drinking a tall cold glass of lemonade. It helps in decreasing dehydration which is the main reason why you love it so much on a hot day.


One of my favorite things about limeades is that they are packed with vitamin C and in places where you go from hot environments into air conditioned ones you need the help you can get to not get sick.

Have a great day and don't forget to drink your water today!

  1. I love limes- I drink them in sparkling water all of the time.

    Sadly, I live in the UK and it has been raining every day for weeks, but I can pretend I am somewhere sunnier when I cut up a lime! Lovely post.

  12. Yes! When we dance a lot in the summer, we always recommend to put a slice of lime or a lime peel in to help with hydration. It works wonders!
