Easy Mint Lemonade(homemade)

Easy mint lemonade

Hi, few months back my hubby took us to a restaurant and we had food and at last he ordered for a mint lemonade. He insisted me to taste it, I tasted it and it was superb. I came home and the next day I made some research and finally made it. Do you know something, it tasted better than the restaurant and my hubby liked it to the core. For this super duper mint lemonade all you need is just 4 ingredients (  readily available in your kitchen ), that's it! What are you waiting for? go ahead and make this drink now!!

Easy Mint Lemonade

Notes
Do switch off the flame after the mint leaves get shrink, else it will turn bitter.
You can make ahead the mint syrup and refrigerate it. It stays well in fridge for a week.
For Lemon juice, water amount may vary slightly depending on the lemon.
