What you’ll need to make strawberry mint limeade
Making your own limeade is really simple and doesn’t require any kind of special equipment. All you’ll need is a saucepan to make the simple syrup and a blender to puree the strawberries.
How to make limeade
The first step is to make your mint simple syrup. Place the sugar, one cup of water, and mint in a medium sauce pan. Let the mixture come to a boil and then remove it from the heat. Keep the mint in it while it cools.
Blend the strawberries with two cups of water until well pureed. Mix in the simple syrup and serve over ice.
Can you replace the sugar with agave?
You can replace the sugar with agave without changing the flavor much. Since agave is sweeter than sugar switch out the cup of sugar for 2/3 cup agave.
How to make sparkling limeade
To turn this recipe into sparkling limeade blend the strawberries with the completely cooled simple syrup instead of water. Replace the two cups of water with club soda.
