Lime Mint Spritz

Author Notes: Moving to the desert has given me a new obsession with cold drinks- you can only convince yourself to chug so much water! This recipe sprung from a local deli's lime spritzer offering that I craved every day last summer and the fact that I just can't tame my mint! So what if I accidentally re-invented a mojito? I certainly won't judge if you a splash of rum (preferably white). enbe

Makes: 2

  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 limes
  • seltzer
  1. Heat sugar and water in a small pot until melted. This will make a substantial amount of simple syrup which you can store in a sealed container in the fridge.
  2. Muddle 5 mint leaves into each cup. If you don't have a muddler, smashing the leaves up with your fingers will do the trick. Juice 1 lime into each cup.
  3. Add a tablespoon of simple syrup and top the glass off with seltzer. Give it a little stir and garnish with an additional mint leaf.
