Minty Lemonade Cocktail

Yes, the weekend is here! The long weekend…oh, you haven’t been waiting in anticipation?  Yeah, me neither. I certainly haven’t been counting the minutes until I can chill out and sip one on of these Minty Lemonade Cocktails. Because that wouldn’t be any fun at all…it wouldn’t be relaxing…and delicious…and refreshing…
Well, see for yourself…

Minty Lemonade Cocktail

6-8 servings

11/2 cups lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
1 cup vodka
Club soda

Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh mint leaves
extra mint leaves to garnish

Prepare the simple syrup in a small saucepan by combining the water and sugar. Warm over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add the mint leaves and let sit for about one hour. Pour through a strainer and discard the mint leaves.

In a pitcher, combine the lemon juice, vodka, simple syrup, and stir.

Add crushed ice to a glass.  Fill glass 3/4 of the way full and the top off with club soda. Garnish with fresh mint.

Cheers to all of the men and woman in uniform,
who sacrifice so much for our country!
