Fresh-squeezed lemons, mint, rosemary...are you ready for Summer? I sure am ready to relax on our patio while Teddy Graham plays in the kiddie pool with the pups.
Lemonade is the ultimate summer thirst quencher, but my homemade Rosemary Mint Lemonade is a little more sophisticated than your standard homemade lemonade. The addition of fresh rosemary gives it a layer of flavor and a surprising edge. Plus when its cocktail hour, you can always add some gin or vodka to make it even more exciting!
- 8 cups of cold water
- 8 large lemons, washed and cut in half
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 10 sprigs of fresh mint
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- Bring water to a boil in a large pot.
- Squeeze lemons. Place the juice and the juiced lemon halves in a non-reactive bowl. Sprinkle it with the granulated sugar.
- Add fresh mint and sprigs of fresh rosemary.
- Once water is boiled, pour it over the lemons. Give it a stir.
- Allow it to sit for 30 minutes on the kitchen counter to cool off.
- Strain. Pour it into mason jars or a pitcher.

- To serve, garnish it with fresh rosemary, slices of lemon, and fresh mint leaves.
