This is a frugal cool drink for the end of the summer. I am usually able to get a large bottle of lemon concentrate at the drug store for free - $1 making lemonade super cheap. We grow mint on our porch, so it's free.
6 cups of water
1 cup lemon juice from concentrate
1 cup sugar
Fresh mint leaves
Heat water and sugar on the stove until sugar is dissolved. Remove from stove and pour in a 2 quart pitcher. Add lemon juice and fresh mint. Stir. Serve over ice.
Thanks Sara for inspiring this recipe.
