Southern Summertime Lemonade

If desired, a few strips of lemon peel may be added at the beginning for a more intense flavor.

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 quart water
  • Sprigs of mint
  • Ice cubes


  1. Squeeze lemons; add sugar, water and mint. Shake well and refrigerate for flavors to mellow (1/2 to 6 hours).
  2. Pour over ice cubes and serve.

This will make 4 large glasses.
