Mint Limeade (a.k.a. Family-Friendly Mojitos)

Fresh limeade is my all-time favorite summer drink.  There’s nothing like the taste of a cold glass of limeade on a hot day.  It’s so freshing!  It always reminds me of my abuelita (grandmother).  She makes the best limeade.  No measurements, just mixing flavors together until it’s just right.  Yum!!  I ask her to make it for me every week when she visits us for the summer.

The other day, JF and I were playing around with flavors, and we came up with this mint-infused limeade club soda drink.  It turns out, it’s the same thing as a mojito, without the alcohol, of course.  It’s refreshing and easy to make.  When I asked JF to describe it, he said it tastes like “an island in a glass.”  Who doesn’t want that?!


  • 4 limes, cut into wedges*
  • 10 large mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup sugar*
  • Club soda
  • Ice


Squeeze the juice of the lime pieces into a small pitcher.  Add in the squeezed lime pieces, mint leaves, and the sugar.  Crush the ingredients with a wooden spoon.

Add ice to fill half the pitcher.  Add in club soda to fill the rest of the pitcher.  Mix all the ingredients together.

Chill and enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.

*Feel free to add more lime juice and sugar, to taste!
