What do I love about summer? Making all of those fun, refreshing summer drinks. Y’all already know my track record shows my love of lemons and in the summer one of the best combinations in my book is lemon and mint. I’ve combined these two flavors to make an easy, yet delicious summer lemonade. The best part about the simple syrup that I used? You can use it with other recipes and will have reserves left over for other fun drinks. Score!
