I hope that you have enjoyed reading (and hopefully trying) the Olympics inspired cocktails the Rio De Ja-tini and the All I do Is Win Gold Medal Mango Margarita as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you! Today I am bringing you something that is a little different, non-alcoholic, and SUPER refreshing. It’s my hand’s down favorite of all my Olympics inspired drinks that I have shared with you, so you know it’s going to be good! Being that the Summer Olympics is being held in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Brazilian Lemonade is the perfect drink for guests to sip at your Olympics watch party. Besides, people will be really impressed on how authentically Brazilian you are being, haha!
Brazilian Lemonade, although delicious, can be confusing in name because it requires no lemons! You won’t miss the fact there are no lemons involved because, uh, sweetened condensed milk is! I could eat anything with sweetened condensed milk on it. If I find a recipe with SCM then it’s an automatic pin on my “Party Sweets” Board! You’ll rarely see me eat a snow cone without SCM (just sayin’). Traditionally in Brazil this is a summer drink which is perfect while your hosting your party for the Summer Olympics, duh! Enjoy this really easy recipe and be prepared to love limes like you’ve never loved them before!
