Lime juice

The best juices are the ones free from artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. I prefer to make my own as often as possible to gain the important and healthy vitamins that only fresh fruit brings. Back home in Barcelona I used to make orange juice almost every morning of beautiful orange fruits from Valencia, here it is merely lime and mango versions that are on the schedule. This refreshing, slightly acidic lime juice is perfect for anytime of the day in this tropical heat.

For one glass of lime juice I use:

 ✓ 1 large lime fruit
 ✓ 1,5 tsp cane sugar
✓ ice cold water

Squeeze the juice from the lime into a glass, add cane sugar or brown sugar, pour in ice cold water, mix well and top it up with a couple of ice cubes.
