Mint Lemonade

Mint Lemonade

Adding mint and fresh lemon slices make a pretty presentation to regular lemonade mix.   My kids like to pick (and eat!) mint from the garden,  this a a fun way for them to contribute to making mint lemonade.

All you need is lemonade mix, lemons, and mint….

Use directions on mix, and add one sliced lemon to the pitcher.   Then, add about 15 whole mint leaves.    Cool in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.   You will notice the mint leaves will turn a little dark; remove with a spoon and add fresh leaves right before serving.
