Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice 5-7 lemons
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons fresh mint leaves roughly torn
  • 16 oz. seltzer water
  • Lemon wedges and mint sprigs for garnish

Instructions

  • Make the lemonade simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
  • While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from the lemons. Depending on size, 5 or 6 lemons but enough for 1 cup of lemon juice.
  • Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Next, "muddle" your mint leaves until they're crushed and fragrant. Add to pitcher.
  • In each glass, add about 4 ounces of mint lemonade to 3-4 ounces of seltzer. Add ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge and mint.
