      I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. Love the addition of the mint. When I use a big batch of mint I wash the mint and then use my salad spinner to dry them well. I did cut the sugar back to just one cup and didnt add the salt. Very refreshing drink. Some members in my family added some vodka to theirs. I love this recipe and its going in the binder for safe keeping thanks Sharon for sharing this recipe with us!
