This sparkling lemon mint lemonade is an excellent spring or summer drink to sip on in the afternoon on a hot day. It's refreshing, sweet, and tart, with the delicious flavor of mint. 

Ingredients
  • 2 lemons, rind removed
  • 5-10 mint leaves*
  • 1/3-1/2 tsp. liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4-6 cups sparkling water
  • 10-15 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Add lemons, mint leaves, stevia, and water (not the sparkling water) into a high-speed blender and blend on high. If you don't have a high-speed blender, you might want to pour the lemon-mint concentrate over a strainer or a nut milk bag.
  2. At this point, you can either add the sparkling water to the concentrate right away and adjust the taste or put the concentrate in the fridge and add the sparkling water right before serving (so the water stays fizzy).
  3. Serve chilled over ice with a few mint leaves and slices of lemon.
Recipe Notes

*This lemonade tastes great even without the mint leaves. So add as many (or as few) mint leaves as you like. I usually add just a few to taste.
**Start with 4 cups of sparkling water and add more to taste.
