Summer Drink Series : Mint Lemonade


Our neighbors came over a few weeks ago and brought over this deliciously refreshing drink so I can’t take full credit for this recipes. (Thanks David & Kami). The only thing I changed was I made it with the healthier version of lemonade.

1 packet of calorie-free/sugar-free lemonade 
5 cups of ice
A handful of mint leaves
Water

Combine the ice, mint and about 2 cups of water and blend. The consistency will be of a wet slush. Adjust ice if too watery or water if too slushy. It’s all up to you.


Pour your mint slush into a pitcher and add the lemonade mixture. Mix in the rest of the water following the drink mix instructions. I like to use a little less water as the ice will melt. 

Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes before serving. It is best when the flavors have a chance to marry.
