We could eat limeade all spring and summer long! This year we tried mixing it up a little making rhubarb mint limeades instead of the usual.

Everett loves having a part in making our limeades.  He’s always picking mint and bringing it inside asking for us to make limeades.  Besides harvesting the mint from the garden and garnishing each glass with a little sprig, Everett’s role in our drink mixing is also helping juice the limes.  I make the simple syrup, then we add in some water and wahlah, they’re done.  So easy a toddler can make them!

We took a pitcher of this with us over to a friend’s house for dinner but of course you could keep it in your fridge for a few days of refreshment as well!  Hope you and your family enjoy these limeades as much as we do!
