ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Maple-Mint Lemonade is a classic summertime refresher.
Makes 2 servings
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup, plus more as needed
16 ounces filtered or spring water
2 sprigs fresh spearmint or peppermint
10 to 12 ice cubes
Pour the lemon juice and maple syrup in a small bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Divide the lemon mixture into 2 tall, 12-ounce glasses. Pour 8 ounces of water into each glass, stirring constantly. Taste and add more maple syrup, if desired. Add 5 to 6 ice cubes to each glass. Stir well to combine. Tuck a fresh mint sprig between the ice cubes, leaving an inch of mint peeking out at the top. Serve immediately.
