Minted Lemonade

by Tenina Holder

Got lemons? Make lemonadeā€¦.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 dayā€¦not that there are many of those around just yetā€¦but they are coming. Brace yourself Australiaā€¦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 drinkā€¦.Cin Cin!

I make this all the timeā€¦it is amazingā€¦you just have to remember to make it ahead of time enough so you have a little fizz, and donā€™t go too far over board with the fermentation and then think you are serving ā€˜lemonadeā€™ā€¦.you could be in trouble if drinking this then drivingā€¦just sayinā€™.
