Cran-Raspberry Lemonade – This is so good!
This is a version of my fabulous sister-in-law’s recipe. Grow some mint and try this. Mint is very easy to grow but be selective where you put it because it is invasive. This is a great container plant.
1 ½ C sugar
1 C water
6-8 sprigs of fresh mint
Combine water and sugar. Bring to boil to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and add mint. Let sit for several minutes. Strain leaves.

½ C mint syrup (or to taste) You can serve this without the mint syrup–but you will be missing out!!
Fresh pureed fruit (raspberry or strawberry is wonderful) you can use frozen
1 Can of lemonade or fresh lemon juice, water and sugar to taste
1/4 Can of cranberry juice (adding water to taste)
Mix and serve chilled
