This simple mint lemonade is so refreshing on a hot Summer day! If you don’t have any mint, you can make the recipe without it and the lemonade itself still tastes great.

If you want to freeze the lemonade mixture, just put the sugar, lemon juice, and mint leaves in a baggie. Label the bag and write “add 4 C. water”. Freeze and enjoy later.
