lemons into lemonade

This summer I am going to get one of those fancy schmancy beverage jars with a spigot. They just add an extra something to your run of the mill cook out, don't you think? I particularly love the look of them with those chalkboard signs....

I plan to fill it with delicious lemonade every chance I get!

Mint Lemonade from

  • 1/4 cup sugar for simple syrup
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 2/3 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons julienned mint, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1 lemon, sliced 1/4-inch thick, plus more for garnish


  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1/4 cup water. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Let stand until completely cool.
  2. In a large pitcher half-filled with ice, add 2 cups water, lemon juice, simple syrup, mint, and lemon slices. Stir to combine. Serve over ice. Garnish with mint leaves and lemon slices.
