This is from Cooking Light magazine. The fresh, cool flavor of mint is a welcome addition to this warm-weather drink. Try serving it as a refreshing cooler with spicy Asian food. **I just made this for a potluck recently and everyone raved about it. I thought the sweetness was just right but I like sweet. Since a couple of reviewers thought it was too sweet...if you don't like sweet... start with less sugar and add more at the end.**

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 2 cups water, sugar, and chopped mint in a small saucepan; bring to a boil.
  2. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Strain through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
  4. Combine the remaining 4 cups water, sugar syrup, and lime juice in a large pitcher, stirring well.
  5. Serve over ice, garnish with mint sprigs and lime slices, if desired.

Very refreshing. Just a slight hint of mint (which was perfect for us) and a tangy lime flavor. Thank you for sharing with us.

Yummmmm! What a refreshing poolside treat! Like many reviewers I too cut back on the sugar and increased the mint... results- Delicious!

What to do with all this mint growing around the house? I know, make a drink other than Mojitos. LoL! I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup and added more mint. Very refreshing. :)
