Delicious Mint Lemonade

Spearmint mint

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 spearmint 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’s SpearMint Lemonade
1/2 cup Spearmint Simple Syrup

1/4 cup freshly squeezed (or frozen or bottled) Lemon Juice
1 cup Cold Water

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!

The FarmGirl’s Relaxer
1 oz Rum (your favorite)
4 oz FarmGirl Mint Lemonade
2 Oz Lemon-Lime Soda

Combine all ingredients in a tall glass, add a handful of ice and stir.  Enjoy!

  1. Yes we did ask for it! Thanks for posting… I’ve got the mint syrup cooling as I type and I certainly can’t wait to make some tea tonight and lemonade for tomorrow! Thanks again!

  2. Sadly, the lemonade didn’t come out as well as yours, but it was still a big hit! I will definitely try the ice cubes! I was thinking of freezing some crushed mint leaves as well, because I love mint in my ice water in the summer so while I’m at it I’ll make some others! Thanks again for posting the recipes!

  3. Well, I had another customer tell me today that his family made the lemonade over the holiday weekend and it was great —- and all the adults liked it with rum. LOL!

    Thanks, Kevin!
