Minty Lemonade

Transform lemonade in seconds with a handful of fresh mint leaves. Don't chop them--keep leaves whole to avoid murky lemonade (and bits of green in your teeth).


  • Whole fresh mint leaves
  • Lemonade

How to Make It

  1. To maximize the mint flavor, cup the leaves in the palm of one hand, and clap your hands together a few times to release the herb's aroma. Add leaves to lemonade.
