  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 limes, cut into 8 wedges each, plus more wedges for garnish
  • 24 mint sprigs, plus more for garnish
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 cup Rose's lime juice

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, simmer the water and sugar, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Transfer the sugar syrup to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled.

  2. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the 16 lime wedges and the 24 mint sprigs. Using a wooden spoon, mash everything together. Strain the syrup into a clean pitcher.

  3. Fill a large cocktail shaker with ice. Add half of the lime-mint syrup, 1/2 cup of Rose's lime juice and 1 1/2 cups of the bourbon and shake vigorously. Fill 4 highball glasses with ice cubes. Strain the limeade into the glasses and add a splash of seltzer to each drink. Garnish with a lime wedge and a mint sprig. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 4 more drinks.

Make Ahead

The sugar syrup can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
