DIRECTIONS

  • Bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil 1 minute.
  • Add lemon peel strips and mint sprigs (I prefer Kentucky mint, but any will work).
  • Cover and let stand 30 minutes to infuse syrup with flavors.
  • Strain through a sieve into a large pitcher.
  • Add lemon juice.
  • Stir well and chill for at least 2 hours.
  • At serving time, add sparkling water.
  • Place ice cubes in a glass, and fill with mint lemonade.
  • Enjoy!
