- 1 1/2 cups lime juice (from 12-15 limes)
- 6-8 tablespoons superfine sugar
- 4 1/2 cups cold water
- 18 fresh mint sprigs
- ice cubes
Put the lime juice in a large pitcher. Stir in 6 tablespoons sugar until it dissolves. Stir in the water. Crush the mint sprigs, then stir into the limeade. Taste and add the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar if desired. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
For a picnic: Transfer the limeade, including the mint sprigs to a chilled large Thermos. Serve over ice cubes, tucking 2 or 3 mint sprigs among the cubes.
