Tired of the same-old lemonade? Try limeade instead. In Southeast Asia, limeade (also known as "lime water") is a popular drink due to the fact that fresh limes are so readily available, and the weather is so hot. Limeade is very refreshing and fragrant and its light green color also makes it a beautiful drink to serve.
