Honey Limeade

The other day I made fresh limeade with honey and realized that, while I've posted my raw sugar lemonade recipe, I haven't posted anything about making it with honey. Now, if you don't like the taste of honey in a beverage, this may not be for you, because you can taste the honey. But since we all love honey in my family, we loved this version of limeade. And, of course, it could just as easily be made with lemons instead (keeping in mind that lemons are generally about twice as big as limes).

Honey Limeade

Juice from 8 limes (about 3/4 c.)
3/4 c. honey
2 c. very warm water
more water

Pour honey into pitcher and add very warm water. Mix thoroughly so honey melts and combines with water.

Juice limes. Add juice to pitcher. Mix. Add cold water, to taste, until limeade is as tart or sweet as you like it. (Adding a drop of (CPTG) lemon essential oil might be nice, too.) Place in fridge to chill.
