Mint Lime-ade

Time for something refreshing.

And a little bit sour (I was going to write ‘tart’ but “a little bit tart” just sounds a little bit wrong).

This drink doesn’t take long to put together and then you just have cooling and chilling time – although lots of ice cubes will reduce the latter.

It makes a great change to lemonade.

Short but sweet post today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a little Friday treat . . .

Mint Lime-ade

Ingredients:

  • juice of 2 limes
  • 15g sugar
  • 189ml water
  • 1 large sprig of fresh mint
  • sparkling water and ice to serve
  • mint leaves and lime slices to garnish (optional)

Method:

  1. Place the lime juice, sugar and water in a small saucepan. Remove the leaves from the mint and tear them into the pan, add the stalks also.
  2. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved and small bubbles are appearing around the edges.
  3. Turn off the heat and leave to steep / cool to room temperature.
  4. Strain through a sieve to remove the mint leaves and stalks.
  5. The mixture can now be placed in the fridge to chill or alternatively divide between 2 glasses and add plenty of ice cubes. Top up with sparkling water. Garnish with the mint leaves and lime slices if using.
