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!
