mint limeade

 2 cups sugar
8 cups water, divided
1/3 cup mint, coarsely chopped
1 cup lime juice (~12 limes)
mint sprigs
lime slices

Make simple syrup by boiling sugar, 2 c. water, and mint until sugar dissolves. Remove; let stand 10 minutes. Strain out mint. If serving with seltzer, combine on the spot. If water, combine ahead and chill.

I was inspired to look up this recipe after ordering it at a great restaurant in DC called Founding Farmers on my birthday a few years back. Then when I got pregnant again, I needed lots of new non-alcoholic drink ideas to survive the hot summer. But if you're not preggers, add white rum to make it a mojito if you'd like. I know I do.

Remember that time we joked about being long lost twins? So, mojito = my most favorite drink ever. No joke. Ask my husband. Non-alcoholic version for everyday? Fabulous!
