To make this an Adults Only drink: Add vodka, rum or gin (I've used regular & flavored vodkas like citrus, raspberry, etc).
I also like to jazz up the ice cubes by placing lemon zest & pomegranate seeds in each section of the ice cube tray(s), then fill them with water (or cranberry juice) and freeze until solid.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Oh so fresh and fruity! The Crew and I had a tough time finding Meyer lemons out of season (Dec-April), so we used regular lemons instead. Well, let me tell you, that didn't hurt the recipe a bit! The flavors are simply delightful.
TIP: Try letting the prepared drink sit a bit to let the flavors meld, then strain to remove the mint leaves. The Test Kitchen
