  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups plus 6 cups water
  • Juice of 8 limes
  • Freshly grated zest of 3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 20 fresh mint leaves
  • Garnish: Mint leaves and lime wedges


In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 2 cups water. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and cool 5 minutes.

Pour the sugar water into a pitcher and add the lime juice, lime zest, ginger, and mint. Stir with a wooden spoon, pressing on the mint leaves to release their flavor. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Pour the lime mixture through a strainer and into a thermos or serving pitcher. Add the remaining 6 cups of water and taste. Add more sugar, if you like. Garnish with mint and lime wedges.
