Homemade Mint Limeade
6-8 limes (medium size)
2 large handfuls of mint
1/4-1/2 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you prefer)
3 cups water
First, roll the limes (in order to help them release more juice) then quarter the limes. In a large cup combine the lime mint and sugar. Muddle with a wooden spoon, (or a rolling pin) until the sugar is completely dissolved. Fill the rest of the cup with water (about 1 cup) and strain into a large pitcher over ice and add remaining two cups water.
Tip: If it is not strong enough, add more lime juice, or make another batch of the muddled concoction- it will all depend on how juicy and flavorful your limes are. 🙂
This limeade is so refreshing! Make it and embrace the coming warm weather! Or help your kids make a limeade stand!
