Equipment

  • 1 Cocktail Muddler
  • 1 Drink Pitcher

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ cup very hot water
  • 1 handful of fresh mint
  • 8 limes
  • Sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1 cup Sparkling water divided

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and the hot water until the sugar dissolves.
  • Place a few mint leaves at the bottom of a pitcher and crush with a muddler or large wooden spoon.
  • Juice the limes into the pitcher, add the sugar water.
  • Take a lime wedge and cut a slit in the wedge. Then rub around the rim of the glass. Dip it into salt. Add ice to the glass and then pour in the limeade and top with a quarter cup of sparkling water. Repeat until all glasses are filled. Enjoy.

Notes

  • Alcohol - If you want to kick it up notch add tequila or rum to taste or drink as Jaden suggests with a little gin!
