Not as easy as her Cloudy Lemonade but as delicious! From Nigella Lawson
Mint and Lime cool aid
- 8 limes (1 cup juice)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- bunch fresh mint, some sprigs reserved for pitcher later
- 5 cups water
- ice cubes.
Remove zest of 4 of the limes using a veg peeler or a zester and put this along with the sugar, mint, and 1 cup of the water into a saucepan. Bring this to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Let this mixture simmer in pan for 5 minutes after boil. Cool, strain into pitcher. Squeeze limes to make 1 cup plus 2 tbls of juice then add water and sugar mixture into pitcher. Add ice cubes and springs of mint.
