Minty Lime Coolers


Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, the dynamic chef-owners of Border Grill and Ciudad in Los Angeles, devised this refreshing summer drink, a great thirst quencher.


2 cups fresh lime juice
1 1/4 cups superfine sugar
1 large bunch fresh mint leaves (about 1 cup)
  Chilled sparkling water
4 Fresh mint sprigs (as garnish)
4 lime wheels - slices (as garnish)


Combine the lime juice, sugar, and mint in a blender and process until the mint is thoroughly pulverized.

Divide the resulting syrup between 4 tall, ice-filled glasses, filling halfway. Top with sparkling water, then garnish each glass with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
