I made this twice as the first pitcher was consumed almost immediately after it was made. The first time around I chopped up the mint and then crushed it against the side of the pitcher, but even after I removed most of it my son said he liked the taste, but not the bits of mint in the drink, so the second time I used mint extract and just garnished with mint leaves that he can pick out.
- 3 12 oz cans (or 4 1/2 cups) of Sprite Zero or other lemon/lime drink.
- 1 Can Frozen Limeaid or 3 fresh limes
- 1/2-1 tsp Mint Extract or approx. 1/4 cup of fresh mint leaves
- 1 lime (for garnishment)
- A few mint leaves (for garnishment)
- 1 large pitcher
- 1 large spoon
If using fresh mint leaves, put them in the pitcher first.
Chop up the lime, then add it and the mint leaves to the pitcher for garnishing.
