      I might have changed the entire thing when I left out both the lemon slices AND the mint, but since I'm not terribly fond of mint anyway, I didn't think it any great loss! Other than that, though, I did make the lemonade as given here & was very happy with the result! Loved the addition of zest to the drink & look forward to making it again & again during the warm summer months! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
