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.
Fruit & Mint Lemonade
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.
Or you can be daring and try mango or blueberry!
1 Can of lemonade or fresh lemon juice, water and sugar to taste
Mix and serve chilled
