Strawberry mint sparkling limeade

This is a delicious, refreshing sparkling limeade made with fresh strawberries and mint. It’s super easy to whip up – just make a minty strawberry purée and add sparkling water. The strawberry purée comes together easily in the blender and is actually best made ahead so the bubbles have a chance to settle.

Ingredients

  • 6 large strawberries
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1-3-1/2 cup sugar, depending on your sweetness preference
  • 12 mint leaves
  • Sparkling water
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. In a blender, blend strawberries, sugar, and lime juice until completely smooth. Add mint and blend at a lower speed so that mint leaf pieces are still somewhat visible. Pour mixture in an airtight container or glass jar and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to let bubbles settle.
  2. To make each drink, fill a 10 ounce glass halfway with ice. Add 5 tablespoons purée, then 1 cup of sparkling water. Stir gently to mix. Serve immediately.
