I know it may not seem this way for some of you up north, health but I assure you that warm weather is on its way! It’s just two short weeks until Memorial Day, information pills the official kick-off for picnics, cialis sale BBQs and pool parties. All you need now is the perfect drink recipe.
And of course, by drink I don’t mean cocktail. I am, after all, a responsible 8-month pregnant lady and someone my size and shape would get funny looks holding a cocktail. So this Mint Limeade is a deliciously virgin beverage, though I’m quite sure adding a shot or two of tequila wouldn’t detract from its charms. Usually, I’m too impatient to make quality beverages. They always require cooled simple syrup and I just don’t plan that far in advance.
That’s why I love this recipe. You basically take all the ingredients and throw them in a blender – whole limes, ice, water, brown sugar and mint leaves. The lime and mint make it super refreshing while the brown sugar adds a nice depth and almost caramel flavor. It’s definitely summer in a glass.
