Sparkling Limeade

Sparkling Limeade

Again one more recipe followed to the list of my all-time favorite Chef. Roger Mooking but this time it’s a refreshing drink with a small changes. Do check out my other try from Chef. Roger Mooking – Yogurt with Mint Gremolata, Okra Minced Meat Stir-Fry.

Sparkling Limeade is nothing but lemon, sugar syrup, mint leaves, ice cubes together with sparkling water. Sparkling water is nothing but our carbonated water commonly known as club soda. A good coolant for summer with the healthiness of lime and mint leaves.

A great refreshing drink which should be shared among of them and so I am taking this to Fiesta Friday #67 hosted by Angie@the novicegarderner. Let us move on to the recipe…
