I had 1 lime left over from another recipe, so I squeezed it along with the lemons. Great refreshing drink. I used 11 mint leaves and I could barely taste it. Next time I'm, going to increase it to 15.

I loved the taste, but mine looked much darker than the picture. I think this would be great mixed with tea also.
