I was told that long ago a limeade used to be almost as common as a lemonade.
Where in town would you go (other than a grocery store for Newman's Own) for limeade?
I love the limeaide they serve at Ambala Dhaba, theirs is served at a comfortable place between sweet and tart (more tart than sweet), and I think, the perfect companion to their Indian food. I personally love it with any of the Bhakra (goat) dishes.
Ambala Dhaba is on Westwood Blvd, just N of Santa Monica Blvd.
You beat me to it, your response is exactly what I was going to write. BTW it's called Shikanjvi. I enjoy the normal way that they make it but for those that have concerns about sugar, they will cheerfully adjust the amount. I liked it so much at Ambla Dhaba that I found a good recipe online and now make it at home. It is commonly made with limes or lemons.
1781 Westwood Blvd.
18413 Pioneer Blvd.,
The best lime-aid I have found is at most outdoor sporting events. I don't know the name of the stand but they always have a HUGE selection of freshly made juices in glass containers. They just scoop it into the cup and serve it to you fresh.
I just make my own, the secret to good anything-aid is to use a fruit press. The conventional juicer/scraper that is found scrapes too much of the rind giving the juice a stronger than normal tartness. You can find them at ANY good kitchen supply store or web site.
