Lemon-Mint Sparklers

Make the syrup a week ahead, and keep cold. Chill the club soda, too, but mix the drink just before serving to keep it nice and fizzy. Use leftover syrup to make a boozy version for the grown-ups in your crowd, and set up a self-serve beverage station with fresh lemon and mint leaves.

Yield: Makes about 1 1/2 qt.
