Ingredients:  
8 cups water
20 key limes or 10 - 12 regular limes
1-2 lemons (if you have them handy)
1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (add to suit your taste)
1 tsp mixed essence or vanilla essence

Directions:
Directions:
Fill a pitcher with 8 cups cold water.
Squeeze the juice out of key limes or regular limes into a measuring cup. If limes feel a little hard put them in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time, this will allow the juices to flow and make it easier to squeeze. Remove seeds and add juice to water.
Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. I like using sugar in the raw, but you can use any type of sugar you have on hand.
Add mixed essence or vanilla essence and stir.
Slice any leftover limes or lemons and place in pitcher.
Refrigerate until chilled as this tastes best when cold.
