Naptime’s Summer Lemonade with Mint

inspired by the flavors of summer


For Lemonade:

2 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 12 lemons)
1 c. superfine sugar (or more, if you want it sweeter)
1 c. crushed ice
8 c. water

*Add 1 c. (or more) of Vodka if you would like a more “adult” beverage

For Mint Syrup:

½ c. sugar
½ c. water
1 c. fresh mint leaves, chopped


1. Pour all ingredients into a blender and puree until completely smooth. You may have to do this in two batches if your blender is small.
2. To make simple syrup, pour water, sugar and mint leaves into a small saucepan over medium heat. Swirl (do not stir!) water around until sugar is completely dissolved. Turn off heat and allow to cool.
3. Pour mint syrup into lemonade and stir until completely combined.
4. Serve over ice.
5. Relax.
