Need: fresh mint or mint tea, 3 cups water, 3 1/2 cups ice, 1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup sugar
1. Brew a strong cup of mint tea. I used handful of fresh mint and let it steep in 1 cup boiling water for 15 minutes, but if you don't have fresh mint on hand, you could use one or two tea bags. 2. In a pot on the stove combine 2 cups of water and 1 cup sugar, and heat until the sugar dissolves. 3. Pour the lemon juice, sugar water, mint tea and remaining 3 1/2 cups ice into a large pitcher and mix until combined. 4. Refrigerate until cool, and then serve in glass or jar of your choice.
