Inspired by Kitchen Kick’s Homemade Lemonade, I whipped up my own festive drink using ingredients from this week’s Bountiful Basket: limes & fresh mint! The aroma of fresh mint and the flavor of this zesty drink was invigorating!
- 1.5 qts water (= 6 cups)
- ~ 8 small & juicy limes
- 1/2 cup Splenda or Stevia
- ~ 2 handfuls mint leaves, chopped
- Combine ingredients in large pitcher and let stand for about an hour; the longer it sits, the more pronounced the mint flavor becomes
- Serve over ice, letting only a few pieces of mint leaves pour into the drink (for color)
- Garnish with a mint leaf
