Peppermint Lemonade

★★★★★

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
Pour the lemonade concentrate into a large pitcher or cooler with a spout. Stir in enough water to make 1 gallon. Grate the zest from the lemon and add to the pitcher, then squeeze the lemon juice from the lemon into the pitcher. In a small bowl, crush the mint leaves into the sugar using a muddler or a wooden spoon. Stir into the lemonade. Cover and chill for several hours, then strain to remove the leaves and zest before serving. Serve over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Makes 16 servings

Instead of a punch that was full of sugary sherbet and soda, I went with a lemonade for the party. (I know there’s still sugar, but I feel better about the sugar in lemonade than the sugar in punch.) This was a hit with both the adults and the children. It was in a 2 gallon drink dispenser and we wiped it out!
