This lemonade is quick and easy to make.  It is sweetened with honey, so no refined sugars, artificial sweeteners or colors.  Just lemons, honey, water and mint.  I use a honey simple syrup which is made by combining two parts honey with 1 part water in a saucepan and heating it on the stove.  Stir well and let cool.  You can keep a batch of honey simple syrup in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  To make the lemonade I use a regular blender.  A Vitamix or other high-speed blender is a little too powerful.  For pink lemonade omit the mint and add 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries.  Enjoy this lemonade on it’s own or with Prairie organic vodka for a great summer cocktail.

Cut 3 organic lemons into 8 pieces each.
Place lemons in blender with 1 oz. fresh mint, 4 1/2 cups water, 1 cup honey simple syrup
and a pinch of salt.
Blend for only 10 seconds.
Any longer and it can get bitter.
Strain lemonade through a sieve into a glass pitcher.
Serve over ice and enjoy!
