  • ½ lime sliced, plus more for garnish
  • 4 mint leaves
  • Splash of juice Limoncello or Midori (if desired)
  • Club soda or sparkling water

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients except for club soda in a pitcher or punch bowl.

Notes

If you're looking for more flavor, some fresh-squeezed juice or a half-ounce per pitcher of Midori or Limoncello would sweeten it up. You can also add ginger to your fruit (strain it out before serving), or top off each glass with a flavored sparkling water (I'm obsessed with all of LaCroix's flavors) or your favorite soda (I like Fentinmans ginger beer and rose lemonade).
