This is a fabulous drink but the recipe forgot the lime. I squeezed the juice from half a lime and then just left the lime in the glass. I also used a little more carbonated water and simple syrup than the recipe called for. This is a very refreshing drink, similar to a limeade. Read More

An easy and delicious mojito, the brother of the mint julip. Much better as there is no confectioner's sugar in it (simple syrup is so easy to make without the confectioner sugar taste...yuck). A favorite with our guests! Read More

I added the juice of 1/2 lime doubled the carbonated water mint and simple syrup... just for 1 serving. The rum was too strong in this recipe... that's all I could taste. It's still not as good as Fridays... which is the best if anyone has that recipe! Read More

I infused the mint and some lime zest with the simple syrup. Very good results. I also added 1/4 lime to each drink. Read More

As others have said lime is a must. Muddling some fresh fruit like blueberries along with the mint adds to the drink. Read More
