1 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 4 cups cold water 1 1/2 cup Equal Spoonful or sugar ice cubes 6 lime slice twists 6 fresh mint sprigs
Mix lime juice, water and sweetener; refrigerate until chilled.
Serve over ice in tall glasses; garnish with lime slice twists and mint.
Limeade can be frozen in ice cube trays; the cubes can be used with the limeade so it will not be diluted. Also, the ice cubes can be processed in a blender or food processor to make a delicious lime slush.

I think this does have too much sugar. I added it to taste and it wasn't 1 1/2 cups. Good fresh lime flavor.

I varied this just a little based on the notes that this could be frozen in ice cube trays. I made the recipe as is and froze it. Then added the ice cubes to unsweetened iced tea. Perfect!

Too much sugar! We drank half of it then I mixed in 1 cup lime, 2.66 cup water... It was much better... I think I would start with 1.5 cups lime, 4 cups water, .5 cup sugar and test it next time to see if it needed more sugar...

Given the other review, I just added sugar to taste after I mixed it up (so I didn't really measure). It's refreshing with fresh squeezed limes (I used key limes) and the mint.
