An Invigorating Mocktail: Mint Limeade

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! 

Ingredients

  • 1.5 qts water (= 6 cups)
  • ~ 8 small & juicy limes
  • 1/2 cup Splenda or Stevia
  • ~ 2 handfuls mint leaves, chopped

Instructions

  • 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
  • Enjoy!
