Brazilian Limeade

Sitting in Tusayan, Arizona with the blistering wind outside enough to send shivers down your spine I yearn for the warmth I was surrounded with only yesterday. And the kind of warmth found on Brazilian shores where this Brazilian Limeade is from. An ode to the refreshing way whole limes are blended with a little sweetened condensed milk and consumed with a bunch of ice.

Spring is an undecided season. One minute your warm and the next a storm approaches bringing snow with it. The uncertainty is something you can’t lean on or become cozy with. I’m impatient for more warmth, the long summer I’ve come from has now become my norm and colder weather does nothing to my senses other than alert for discomfort.

With a new day brings a new location for me to discover and photograph. It also forecasts possible snow, a weather feature I’ve never had to deal with before while driving, I’m hoping with crossed fingers that the snow holds off and the persistent wind calms itself down long enough to let me pass unscathed.

All the while my Instagram account alerts me of the many people in stifling heat in the Californian desert for Coachella, making me wonder why on earth I didn’t go there! Soon enough though, the weather will be warm here and the blistering cold will pass like it has for many seasons in the Grand Canyon and then it will be time for this drink.
