mint drink~~~~summertime

When I think of summer,  I think of the mint drink that my sweet mother made.

It is just a simple syrup, made with fresh lemon, orange, and mint.

You add the ginger ale, water or adult beverage of your choice!

The recipe:

2 Cups sugar
Juice of 6 lemons and 2 oranges
1 Cup of mint leaves

Cook sugar 5 minutes and cool.  Add fruit juice, pour over mint,
cover and let stand for 1 hour.
Strain in jar and store in refrigerator.
Use 1/3 Cup of syrup to glass of ginger ale or water or beverage of your choice : )
