“In very hot weather, this cold, refreshing drink is a welcome relief. It is popular in Thailand, and is a perfect accompaniment to spicy Thai foods such as curry.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With your hands or a reamer, squeeze the juice from limes to make 1 cup of lime juice. Set juice and lime rings aside.
  2. Pour water into a 2-quart microwavable glass measuring cup. Microwave, uncovered for 6 to 8 minutes on High until almost boiling. Little bubbles will form on the water surface.
  3. Add sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add lime rinds and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes until cool.
  4. Squeeze the remaining juice from the rinds into the limeade through a sieve into a pitcher. Add reserved lime juice and stir well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. To serve, fill a tall glass with ice and add limeade. Garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
