Now that we are finally having some of that sit outside with a cocktail and enjoy weather, I’m sharing one of my favorite spring/summertime cocktail recipes- Lowcountry Lemonade. Often a signature drink at many of our weddings, here is a version you can make at home
Lowcountry Lemonade (Adult version; serves 4-6)
3/4 cup sugar
2 oz peach schnapps for every 6 oz of lemonade
one bunch of mint, rinsed and dried
1. To make a pitcher to share with friends, you should first make the simple syrup (heat 3/4 cup sugar with 1 cup water in a small saucepan until sugar is completely dissolved). Add the juice of five lemons and add both to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups (to taste) of cold water (therefore, 8 to 10 ounces peach schnapps). Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Serve over crushed ice and garnish with fresh mint leaf.
