Brown Sugar and Mint Limeade

Here’s a refreshing and delicious drink for a hot summer day.   

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 to, so of course I had to try some.

The brown sugar gave this drink just enough sweetness and the light mint flavor was a perfect touch.

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

About Serving

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.
