Mint Lime Ginger Splash

  • Author: Fanny Slater
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 drinks 1x


Need a bubbly beverage that packs a punch? Finished with sparkling water, this mint and lime libation is infused with spicy ginger.


  • 2 cups water
  • 2-inch knob fresh ginger root, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Juice of 23 limes (about 1/3 cup), plus lime slices/wedges for garnish
  • 23 cups ice
  • 1 1/2 cups chilled sparkling water or club soda
  • Edible flowers, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepot over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the ginger and mint. Steep for 30 minutes.
  2. Using cheesecloth or a fine mesh sieve, strain the liquid into a container big enough to hold 4 cups. Using the back of a spoon, press down on the ginger and mint to extract as much flavor as possible. Stir in the honey. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator, and stir in the fresh lime juice. 
  4. Divide the ice cubes among 4 10-ounce glasses and pour the mint-ginger beverage on top. Add sparkling water to taste/to fill the glasses, stir gently, and then garnish each glass with the lime slices or wedges, mint sprigs, and edible flowers.
