Mint Limeade…the perfect drink to get you out on the deck, slipping your flip-flops off, and sipping away while you dream about being on the beach.  Or, if you’re my husband, it’s the drink that, in his words, makes you feel like a (sober) Sam Axe… Yup, it’s the simple things in life that make summer awesome.

And this drink is super easy to make.  You take a simple syrup infused with fresh mint leaves and lime zest, then add fresh lime juice, water and ice.

You’re a few minutes away from taking a sip of refreshing mint limeade, and dreaming yourself away to the beach…

Mint Limeade

Serves 4-6


  • 6 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Zest of 3 limes
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • Ice


  • To make the simple syrup, combine 1 cup of water, the sugar, lime zest and mint leaves in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the syrup reaches a boil, remove from the heat.  Let the syrup cool completely, then pour the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl. Cover, and refrigerate until cold.
  • Once the lime-mint syrup is cold, pour the syrup into a pitcher, and add the lime juice and 5 cups of cold water.  Stir until combined.
  • Fill glasses with ice, pour the limeade into each glass, and enjoy!
