Jamaican Lemonade Recipe
The Jamaican lemonade that I knew as a child is better described as limeade because we used limes instead of lemons. This recipe was created to taste like the “lemonade” I remember. We used wet sugar, which has a strong molasses flavour. To duplicate that flavour I added a few tablespoons of molasses. You may find this drink quite sweet, but that’s because you’re supposed to pour it over ice, which dilutes the flavour. If you prefer it less sweet, simply use less sugar.

Tip: slice 1 lime or lemon and put it in the jug with the lemonade for a beautiful presentation. This recipe also makes a wonderful mix for cocktails. Add some rum to a jug to make a quick punch.

Ingredients
8 cups cold water
8 juicy limes (you may need 1 or 2 more)
1 juicy lemon
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp molasses

Directions
1. Juice enough limes and 1 lemon to make 1 cup of juice
2. Add brown sugar, juice and molasses to the water and stir until all the sugar has dissolved
3. Pour in a jug and refrigerate
