While it's called a limonada, you can use lemon juice or lime juice interchangeably. In Mexico, there are no lemons, just limes--hence the name limonada. You could also use half lemon juice and half lime juice or use orange juice to make a naranjada. If you do go with the orange juice, use about half of the stevia drops since oranges are much sweeter than limes or lemons.
