Nothing says summer like lemonade, and if you like making yours at home then you've probably tried using both honey and sugar to sweeten. Have you tried maple syrup?! Yum! We like to fill a half-gallon growler with lemon juice, maple syrup, and water, then stuff some fresh herbs like mint or lemon balm into the jar. Start with a cup of lemon juice, a half-cup of maple syrup, and water to the neck of the growler then taste and adjust from there. Just making a quart to start off? Try a half-cup of lemon juice and a quarter-cup of maple syrup.
Now pour over a glass of ice and garnish with mint or lemon balm. We think you'll agree it's the perfect summer drink!
