Limeade with Smoked Ice Cubes, Edible Flowers, and Grilled lime slices

Limeade has been a favorite of mine ever since the days of going to Sonic at 2 am. Currently I have a slightly more refined pallet but was still all to happy to create a fun spin on a summer favorite.

Also, smoked ice cubes infused with edible flowers, are you kidding me? How could I not?

For flower infused smoked Ice

3C Water

16 Edible Flowers

Set Smoker to "smoke" with the lid open about 5 minutes.

Pour the water into a foil pan or baking dish and smoke for 25 min.

Remove from smoker and let cool completely.

Pour the water into an ice cube tray, and place flowers one four into each cube.

Freeze overnight.

For grilled limes.

1 lime, sliced

Set smoker to "high" after the fire is established. Grill the slices about 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside.

For limeade

5 limes, juiced

3/4 can sweetened condensed milk

1 Liter Tonic Water

1 bottle Jarritos lime soda

Mix all the ingredients WELL ( a blender would be perfect, but otherwise whisk the crap out of it)

You can add more water or more sweetened condensed milk depending on how sweet or tart you'd like your drink!

Add the ice cubes RIGHT before serving, and garnish with lime slices on each cup.
