Mint Limeade

Mint Limeade created by Mamas Kitchen Hope

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.**

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

    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. :)
