Remember that Mint Simple Syrup recipe I posted on June 2? That’s the key to the Mint Lemonade I made for today’s Open House at The Farm. Glad you all liked it so much!
There’s no better time than a steamy July 4th weekend to stir up a pitcher. So go grab that mint from the yard (which has probably creeped into the NEIGHBOR’S yard, too) and whip up a batch of syrup to use in these tasty drinks.
The FarmGirl Mint Lemonade
1/2 cup Mint Simple Syrup

Stir ingredients together and serve over ice for a refreshing summer beverage.
And now for the Adult version…. Or what every tired farmgirl likes to settle in with on a hot summer night!
