Being pregnant in the summer isn't the easiest thing. It's not easy because it's so hot, you're carrying around 30 extra pounds (at minimum) and in my case, a toddler who can't seem to stop hanging on me. It gets really exhausting and sometimes I just want to sit down and have a drink. Unfortunately, I can't toss back a cold one so I have to find alternatives and I found one I love.
I made salsa a few weeks ago and had half of a lime leftover to use. I decided to juice that sucker to death and a couple ingredients everyone has on hand to create a really light refreshing drink.
1/2 lime, juiced to death
lemon or lime juice to taste
sugar to taste
Juice your lime (or lemon if you want lemonade) and toss it into a large glass of ice, add lemon or lime juice along with sugar to taste. Add water and adjust until you find that right combo.
If you're not pregnant, you may want to toss in a little rum to make it really delicious. Either way, it's so light and refreshing and a perfect summer drink!
