Frothy Brazilian Lemonade

Traditional Brazilian Lemonade is made with limes (limes are more plentiful there). As delicious as that is, I’ve added lemon with the lime for an extra robust citrus flavor. Skip the seltzer if you like but we’re fond of the additional froth. This also makes a nice mixer for adult cocktails.

My mama was no cook. Of the handful of dishes she did cook, this was her version of chocolate pie. And when she made chocolate pie, we always had dill pickles with it. Crazy as that sounds, the pairing works, so give it a try!
