I love limeade too. I remember an ice cream store near where I went to high school that served the best limeade with crushed ice. It was so good and the lime taste was good to the end. But, I love anything lime.

This is similar to one I make, only I use splenda or stevia instead of the simple syrup because the hubby is diabetic. It's also good if you sub carbonated water for the spring water.
