How to Make the Perfect Lemonade

This perfect lemonade is the ultimate refreshing drink on a hot day. Fresh mint ice cubes add an extra hint of flavor.

Place mint leaves in a large pitcher; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat and stir the 2-1/2 cups water and the sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; pour over mint leaves. Stir in lemon juice, orange peel, and orange juice. Cool for 1 hour. Pour into a large jar. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or up to 3 days, removing the mint leaves after 8 hours.
For each serving, fill a 12-ounce glass with ice cubes. Combine 3/4 cup water and 1/2 cup of the lemon juice mixture; pour over ice in glass. Makes 10 (12-ounce) servings.
