Put 1 tablespoon of lemon syrup in a glass with a few ice cubes and a sprig of fresh mint. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Stir in cold water, to taste. Sweeten with more syrup, if you like.

    I made this and my family loved it. Now, I make a double batch and put the lemon syrup in a bottle in the fridge, freeze the lemon juice into ice cubes. Just add the lemon juice ice cube, the syrup and water in a glass (great with some vodka too for an anytime drink or cocktail.
