Making a batch of this American frozen drink recipe for a party? For a touch of easy fanciness, add berries or even edible flowers into an ice tray. Top with water and freeze for beautiful ice cubes to use for the limeade. Also note that the lime zest increases the lime flavor; letting it sit for a day before serving pumps up the citrus-ness.
