  • 1 cup lime juice , freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 5 cups filtered water


  • Lime slices
  • Mint sprigs (sub basil)


  • Add all the ingredients to a pitcher and stir to combine well. Taste and add more water or sweetener if needed. I usually keep it somewhat tart because it will mellow out when served over ice. 
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or enjoy right away over ice. Garnish with a lime slice and mint sprig. Enjoy! 


* Tip: before cutting the limes, roll them on the counter with the palm of your hand. This will help get the maximum amount of juice out of them.
