Another vacation inspired recipe, this time we are doing Tahitian lemonade! It's a bit early in the season for lemonade, but I had a bunch of meyer lemons sitting on the counter, begging to be used up. I may or may not have purchased them with this recipe in mind...
What is Tahitian lemonade? I had never heard of it before either, but was not afraid to try it when given the opportunity. The version I had was very basic: lemon, water, coconut milk, and sweetener. It is sweet and tart and will be great to enjoy on a warm spring afternoon.
The agave in the recipe is really to taste, as some lemons are sweeter than others. The amount I used was perfect to cut through the sourness of the lemon juice and balance the flavors out.
- 1/4 C fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 C coconut water
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1-2 tbsp agave nectar, to taste
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.
- Pour lemonade into a glass filled with ice and serve.
