Mint Limeade

This refreshing recipe for mint limeade comes from Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2005.

  • Yield: Makes 3 quarts

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2005


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh lime juice (about 20 limes), plus 4 limes, thinly sliced crosswise, for garnish
  • 1 1/2 cups superfine sugar


  1. Bring granulated sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium pan over high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Add sugar syrup and mint to a blender; puree. Pour through a very fine mesh sieve into a large serving container; discard solids.
  2. Add lime juice, superfine sugar, and 2 quarts water to a serving container. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 1 day.
  3. To serve, add ice cubes to fill and garnish with lime slices.


The original recipe is double the recipe from the show and can make 1 1/2 gallons which would serve 24.
