Limeade with a Touch of Mint

  • Grated zest of one lime (about 1 Tbsp)
  • 1 cup lime juice (from about 6 Persian limes)
  • 2 cups of Splenda
  • 4 cups water
  • Several sprigs of fresh mint

  1. In a small saucepan bring to a boil the Splenda, one cup of water, and the lime zest. Once the sugar is dissolved (which it should be by the time the water boils), remove from heat and let cool for for a few minutes. The amount of sugar is a guideline, it depends on how sweet you like your limeade and how tart your particular limes are.
  2. Add the lime juice and 3 cups of water. Taste for sour/sweet balance. If too sweet, add a little more lime juice. Add several sprigs of fresh mint.
  3. Chill, or serve immediately over ice.
Makes about 1 quart.
