Memorial day weekend. Summer is here. We just installed our window air conditioner and now our bedroom is the safe haven from the heat. For hanging out in the kitchen and other parts of the apartment, cold drinks are a necessity.
This is a really delicious cold drink. The mint and lime are refreshing and the strawberry adds a nice bit of flavor. It’s also nice when prepared in a blender.
Look how pretty.
1. Prep ingredients:
Dice about a cup of fresh strawberries
Chiffonade a small handful of spearmint leaves
Juice 4-5 limes
Make simple syrup
2. Combine all ingredients along with plenty of water and ice. Use simple syrup as needed— I like my limeade really tart so I use only a splash.
Vodka is optional. Also if you have frozen strawberries throw some in as well. They’re a nice addition.
