Mint Lemonade

Mint Lemonade
  This time of year my Mint patch is at its best. Perfect timing too, as the warm weather starts to appear and it gets hot working in the garden, it's also the time of year for lots of Lemonade !
  Lemonade is great stuff on it's own, but adding some Mint to it makes it ten times better and supper thirst quenching. Adding mint to lemonade is so delicious, if you have never tried it, you are in for a great surprise.
  Make your lemonade as you normally would. Take several sprigs of Mint and crush them in your hands, helping to release more of the essential oils, and simply stick them in the jar with the Lemonade. Place it in the fridge for a couple of hours to cool and give the mint flavor time to infuse into the lemonade. I keep the mint in there till I'm done with the jar and the longer you keep it in, the stronger the Mint taste. Enjoy!
