There is nothing better than a glass of homemade lemonade on a hot day and my mom’s recipe is the best. Drink up!
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
4 cups cold water
Thin slices of lemon for garnish
In a pitcher, dissolve the sugar in the hot water.
Add lemon juice and mix.
Add the cold water and stir. Stir in mint leaves and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Serve over ice and add the lemon slices for garnish.
