A refreshing summer lemonade, with a twist. The mint takes this lemonade over the top. You’ll definitely find yourself going for seconds.
1/2 Cup Simple Syrup OR 1/2 Cup Sugar mixed into 1/2 Cup Warm Water
2/3 Cups Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Cold Water
1/2 Cup Fresh Mint Leaves
3 Cups Ice
Mix the simple syrup (or sugar dissolved in water), lemon juice, cold water, mint leaves, and ice.
Blend until smooth. Garnish and enjoy!
Instead of putting sugar and water, I make simple syrup and keep it on hand. This ensures that your lemonade is smooth and perfectly sweet because the sugar is already dissolved. Just bring to a boil equal amounts of sugar and water. Store in a jar and use in place of sugar!
