The anatomy of the perfect limeade

 A spin-off of the venerable lemonade, the limeade is a straightforward old-fashioned drink. It’s no surprise, then, that it’s a staple of our beverage lineup, and a favorite of our customers. We pride ourselves on the quality of our limeade, from the fresh-cut limes, to the simple syrup we use to sweeten it. Why do we do it the old-fashioned way? Because that’s the way it tastes best.

Popular around the world, the limeade is often found in tropical areas, consumed as a way to beat the insufferable heat. Not too different from our Oklahoma summers, so we find a fresh limeade to be the perfect way to cool down on the hottest days of the year.

The Braum’s way

For us, the perfect limeade starts with the best possible limes. There’s no artificial flavoring that can compete with the crisp taste of a freshly cut lime, so we’re generous with our lime use. One of the distinctive features of our limeades is that we use simple syrup to deliver the sweet taste our customers expect. No artificial taste, and no grittiness from sugar, just pure sweetness to balance the tartness of the limes.

Fill up a glass with good ice, squeeze in the juice of a fresh lime, and add your simple syrup. All that’s left is to top up with a generous slug of soda, and you have the perfect limeade.

Do you like your limeade a little more sweet? Or, are you after a mouth-puckering tartness? Because we make them from scratch, we can make your limeade just like you like it, every time.
