A sophisticated and delicious alternative to a plain lime and soda. Low cal and non-alcoholic, this lime and mint spritzer is the perfect party drink.
This is another of the drink I often offer to non drinkers at parties. Or sometimes I just make it for myself in the summer as it is so refreshing. Simplicty itslef to make it requires juts limes, mint, sugar and soda or ineral water.
What a difference Mint Makes
The drink is basically a lime and soda but the addition of mint lifts the drink to a whole new higher level.
I find a small handful if mint is fine but you can add more to less to adjust just to your liking
With or without Gin
When I first made this drink I made it with the additon of a generous splash of gin my favourite tipple and it was delicious but I soon realised that it was pretty darn good without the gin too.
So now I serve it both ways. I have written the recipe here as the non-alcoholic version. Its great as quick and easy to make and perfect for anyone who can not or does not want to drink alcohol.
