One of America's favorite summer drinks is limeade. Making a refreshing batch for a party? Put a raspberry, blueberry, or even an edible flower in each compartment of an ice cube tray. Gently fill the tray with water and freeze it to create beautiful cubes. Refrigerate the limeade for a day before serving to allow the lime zest to pump up the citrusy flavor.

2 teaspoons grated lime zest (about 2 medium limes)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 medium limes)
1 1/4 teaspoons sugar substitute
5 cups cold water
2 1/2 cups ice
4 lime slices (optional)
In a large pitcher, stir together the lime zest, lime juice, sweetener, and water until the sweetener is dissolved.
Put the ice into glasses. Pour one cup limeade into each glass.
Garnish with the lime slices.
Cooking Tip: To easily get juice from a lime, microwave it on 100% power (high) for 10 to 20 seconds, or until just warmed. Alternatively, roll the lime back and forth on a cutting board under the palm on your hand.
Tip: If you have fruit, such as berries, pineapple, or mango, you can add it to the limeade for extra flavor. Using a muddler or wooden spoon, gently mash about 1/4 cup fruit in a small bowl or mug. Add to the pitcher with the limeade. Stir well to combine.
