Got lemons? Make lemonade….got mint? Add it as garnish and you have a refreshing spritzer that can go a long way to refresh all and sundry on a hot day…not that there are many of those around just yet…but they are coming. Brace yourself Australia…there is a whiff of summer in the air in Perth today, and I have to say, I am excited! This recipe requires a little forethought, but is easy and a great way to get a vitamin C hit in what is essentially a fizzy drink….Cin Cin!
I make this all the time…it is amazing…you just have to remember to make it ahead of time enough so you have a little fizz, and don’t go too far over board with the fermentation and then think you are serving ‘lemonade’….you could be in trouble if drinking this then driving…just sayin’.
