This beastly weather had me searching for something refreshing but not the same old thing - I think this qualifies! From Better Homes and Gardens, June 2011.

Loved this drink!!! I love lemon so this was an easy tag for me. I made this for 1 serving and used fresh squeezed lemon juice, therefore my photo isn't very yellowish other then the lemon slice. I thought I had some frozen mint leaves but found only sage, thyme and chives, so had to omit them and I used Sprite Zero in place of the sparkling water and ginger ale. I think the mint would even make this more refreshing, will plan to make it again when I buy mint leaves again. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for 123 Tag Game.
