Q: Why did the lemon disapprove of his daughter?
A: Because she was a little tart.
Here’s a thirst quenching, refreshing lemonade that stars mint. It makes you want to climb onto a porch swing and kick back for awhile. Add some vodka to improve your kick.
2 cups sugar
6 cups water
2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh whole mint leaves
1. Make simple syrup: Combine sugar and 2 cups water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
2. Pour lemon juice and remaining 4 cups water into a large pitcher. Add 1 cup of the simple syrup and taste. Gradually add more simple syrup to reach desired sweetness. Stir in mint leaves and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve over ice.
