Fresh fruit limeades are very popular drinks in Colombia. They are delicious! Some of the more traditional varieties are watermelon, pineapple, mango,coconut and strawberry.
This cool, refreshing, nonalcoholic drink is guaranteed to cool you down. It comes together really fast and is served icy cold. It’s my new favorite summer drink.
