Papelón con Limón

Papelón con limón is a traditional Venezuelan cold drink made with only three ingredients: piloncillo, limes, and water. It’s most commonly consumed in the summer, during the hottest hours of the day.

This beverage is refreshing and not too sweet, which makes it perfect for pairing with traditional Venezuelan foods such as arepas, cachapas, or hervidos.

The most important part of this beverage is papelón, also known as piloncillo, an unrefined sugarcane sweetener shaped like a cone. It is very popular throughout Latin America, and it is used in a variety of traditional beverages.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 8 ounce Piloncillo Cone

4 Cups Very Hot Water

4 Cups Cold Water

1/2 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
