Delicious! Instead of sugar, I made a simple syrup (2 parts sugar to one part water). Thanks for posting!
Oh my!!! I dont' know what I did wrong, but it was HORRIBLE!! I'm glad I tried it before my party.
Delicious drink! I used a muddler to smash up the mint and REALLY enjoyed the bubbly freshness of this limey-minty-bit-of-perfectness. Thanks for sharing! (**I also like that I did not have to use a simple syrup- the sugar dissolved quite easily!)
