Brown Sugar and Mint Limeade

Sit back and relax with this light and refreshing limeade that’s a wonderful drink any time of the year.

Here’s a refreshing and delicious drink for a hot summer day.  Or for any day for that matter.

Recently I was at a hotel that had a beautiful glass dispenser in the lobby that was filled with mint limeade made with brown sugar.

It was there for guests to help themselves so of course I had to try some.

The brown sugar gave this drink such a nice flavor and the light mint flavor was a perfect touch.

The lime and mint are such a refreshing combination and the slight molasses flavor in the brown sugar gives this drink a unique light sweet taste.

This delightful limeade is best when served ice cold.

A pretty and tasty option for serving this limeade is to rim the glasses with a coating of brown sugar.

Before serving, rub a wedge of lime around the rim of the serving glass or a mason jar.

Then put some brown sugar in a plate or small bowl, turn the glass or mason jar upside down, and dip it in the sugar until the rim is completely coated.

Now that is simple goodness I tell you.

Chill for 2 hours before serving so that the mint will infuse flavor into the limeade.

If a stronger mint flavor is preferred, chill overnight.

The mint leaves will just need to be removed before serving because they’ll turn a dark color.
