Mint Lemonade // Recipe

Yeah, I know this is pretty ridiculously simple to make, but when I was looking for recipes last year the only ones I found were like "put mint leaves in your lemonade" and let me tell you, drinking lemonade that's got mint leaves floating around in it (besides one large leaf for a garnish in a picture) is not very pleasant! So I came up with my own way...

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.

  1. I like mint. So does Indiana. Kitty doesn't. That is why Indy and I are cool.
