Sparkling Mint Limeades

Sparkling Mint Limeades Food Recipe

3/4 cup fresh lime juice (5-6 limes), plus extra slices for garnish
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup packed fresh mint, plus extra for garnish
2-1/2 cups club soda (not seltzer or mineral water)

Combine lime juice, sugar, and mint in a 2 cup (or larger) measuring cup then stir until sugar is dissolved, muddling mint in the process. Refrigerate until chilled (the longer you refrigerate, the more mint flavor you will taste in the final drink.)
Pour the lime/mint mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher then slowly pour in club soda and stir gently. Pour limeade into 8oz glasses filled with ice then serve with extra limes and mint.
