This homemade limeade is kissed with fresh mint & tastes amazing. It’s the perfect non-alcoholic drink for a celebration! 



For The Mint Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar (I prefer cane sugar)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves

For The Mint Limeade (Mojito Mocktail):

  • 23 cups ice
  • Mint simple syrup (above)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
  • 23 cups water


Start With The Mint Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine Sugar, Water, and Fresh Mint Leaves in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring To A Simmer. Heat the simple syrup over medium heat, whisking to help dissolve the sugar. When the syrup reaches a simmer (not a boil!), turn the heat off.
  3. Steep The Syrup. Let the mint steep and infuse the syrup for at least 15-30 minutes.
  4. Strain & Store The Syrup. Then, strain the mint out of the simple syrup by pouring it through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl or liquid measuring cup. Discard the mint & use the syrup right away or store for later. Mint simple syrup will keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Mix Up Your Mint Limeade:

  1. Start With Ice. Now, you’re ready to make your limeade! Add 2-3 cups of ice to a large pitcher.
  2. Add Simple Syrup, Lime Juice & Water. Pour in the mint simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and water.
  3. Stir & Tase Test. Give the limeade a stir to combine everything evenly. Taste test the mint limeade to see if you need more water (to dilute it), more mint leaves, etc. 
  4. Garnish with fresh mint, and lime slices or wedges as desired.
