Summer in a glass. When it's hot and you're looking for something to quench your thirst, this is it. I would imagine that you could probably add vodka if you wanted, but I like the clean fresh taste of the virgin drink. Quick and easy and good for summer parties.
1 Bag of crushed ice (or enough to fill a large jug)
1/2 cup of sugar
Juice from 2 lemons
Juice from 1 lime
4 or 5 leaves of fresh mint
1. Add all of your ingredients except the mint to a blender and blend together until relatively smooth. If you don't have a blender I find that putting your ingredients into the jug and bash it like you would spices with a mortar and pestle, with the small end of a rolling pin.
2. Once you have the ice broken into smaller bits, add in the mint and blend until broken up...don't do it too small though.
3. Serve in large tumblers with a sprig of fresh mint to garnish.
