Doesn’t Mint Lemonade sound divine? This is our new summer drink recipe (even when it’s not quite summer). 

Don’t worry. The mint simple syrup is no more difficult than boiling a pot of water, and adds wonderful flavor and aroma.

1 cup sugar
2 cups fresh mint leaves, with stems
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup ginger ale

In a saucepan, combine sugar with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add mint, remove from heat, cover, and let liquid steep for 1 hour.

Strain liquid into a bowl. In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine mint syrup, lemon juice, orange juice, and ginger ale. Serve over ice.
