This Sparkling Mint Limeade is so fresh tasting and with a surprising fizz from the sparkling water.
Hey readers, it’s Lauren visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch! I’m currently visiting my parents and soaking up the sun by the pool, which is not something I get to do often! And nothing tastes better on a relaxing summer day than a delicious cold drink, am I right?!
I’m a huge fan of homemade Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, but I made this Sparkling Mint Limeade the other day and it was a huge hit! So fresh tasting and I love that extra fizz it has from the sparkling water. You’ve got to try it!
