  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.

Chef's Notes

Both lemons and limes work equally well in this recipe. Just be sure to use the tamper to get things started. Using the Aer Disc container muddles the ingredients to get a refreshing summertime drink.
