  2. Put a handful of crushed ice into 2 tall glasses. Divide the lime juice between the glasses with the mint mix. Add a straw and top up with soda water.

This is a lovely refreshing drink - I've been making alco-free Mojitos for ages. It works very well with sugar alternative (e.g. Splenda) for an even lower calorie drink. It also works well if Agave Nectar (a low GI sweetener) is substituted for the sugar.
I think all the lime should be used, not just the juice. I chop up the limes and muddle them with the mint and sugar directly in a tall Collins glass, then add the ice and drink with a straw. Delicious!

made this on the rare hot sunny evening this August. It was fabulous - even my non teetotal husband loved it. You really do need 3 limes. We used tonic water instead of soda water.
