Mint Lemonade

Mint Lemonade (4)

Just in time for the hot days of summer, we received this homemade lemonade recipe from Koala Crate!

To start, have your child squeeze one lemon half into a cup.

Add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and let your little sous-chef stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Now it’s time to add fresh mint – and fresh is the key word here! If you have your own herb garden, so much the better. Our next best option was a mint plant from the grocery store; Travis loved selecting three leaves before adding them to his cup and muddling.

Adults: Fill the cup the rest of the way with water (about 5 ounces) and stir.
