Mint Julep Lemonade

Mint Julep Lemonade

Mint Julep Lemonade.  Hot summer days and nights are perfect for this non alcoholic Mint Julep Lemonade.  If you have ever grown your own mint,  you know what I didn’t, that mint grows everywhere and anywhere and multiplies.  If you ignore it, don’t water it regularly, don’t prune it–doesn’t matter.  It grows.  With the abundant harvest of mint that I had, I decided that it was time to make a light, tangy refreshing pitcher of lemonade, and kicked it up a notch with the mint.  Try it for yourself–it will be a favorite for summer sweet drinks.
