This zesty homemade sugar-free lemonade makes a deliciously refreshing drink in the cooler months. A mix of freshly squeezed lemons and limes create a beautiful citrus base, with mint leaves adding a pop of colour and minty flavour.

While I’ve used mint here as it’s what I had on hand, you could also experiment with other herbs – a spring of rosemary or some crushed basil leaves would both add lovely flavour profiles to this low-carb cooler.

I added seltzer water to bring carbonation.
