Directions

  1. Pour the lemonade concentrate into a large pitcher or cooler with a spout. Stir in enough water to make 1 gallon. Grate the zest from the lemon and add to the pitcher, then squeeze the lemon juice from the lemon into the pitcher. In a small bowl, crush the mint leaves into the sugar using a muddler or a wooden spoon. Stir into the lemonade. Cover and chill for several hours, then strain to remove the leaves and zest before serving. Serve over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint.

I have used a similar technique using basil bouquet so I thought I would give the mint leaves a try too when I came across this today. I tried 2 new recipes today and liked this one best. However, I personally like to make fresh lemonade with around 6 lemons, then do a simple syrup with 1 part sugar, 1 part water and a bundle of the mint (or basil) leaves I boil it on high, remove the bouquet and add the syrup to the lemon juice and pour in 1 bottle of chilled pellegrino water and serve chilled with ice. It is not too sweet or too strong and the mint (or basil) tastes so delicate with the bubbly water. Plus its kid friendly. Enjoy!

This was a big hit at my Kentucky Derby party. I lightened it up by using 1 cup of Splenda and muddling the mint with 1/4 cup of sugar. I also added the juice of another lemon. I will use it again over the summer.

This is really tasty, though a little strong and sweet for my taste - which is easy to adjust with water and/or less sugar. The mint and lemon together are great. If I was a drinking gal, vodka would be the sure way to go with this - total refresh and fall over. An extra cool thing about this recipe was, while I was digging through my utensils trying to find something to use as a muddler, I found ... a muddler! Magic! Who knew I had one? Thanks for the yummy drink and helping me find a muddler! :D
