Add mint leaves to the drinking glass (or if you are batching, to the pitcher). Cover with just a bit of your lemonade, about 1 oz if making one glass at a time. Muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon. Muddle for 30-60 seconds.
Add in the cubed or crushed ice carefully. Then pour the remaining liquids into the glass, this will be a variation of lemonade, sparkling water, and vodka depending on the version you choose.
If you want to make your drink a bit fancier, add edible flowers, lemon slices, and extra mint. Serve and enjoy!
Muddle: if you don’t have a muddler, you can muddle using a wooden spoon or a back of a wooden utensil. If you don’t have that, you can also use a metal spoon and muddle against the side of the glass.Mint: Use fresh mint leaves from your garden or grocery store. You want to use spearmint instead of peppermint. The size of leaves can vary greatly, so start out small and add more if you don’t love mint. You can always add more, but you can’t un-muddle.Lemonade type: You can use regular lemonade with sweetener or not. You can also use sparkling lemonade for a bit of a fancier drink.Ice with edible flowers, lemon, or mint: For a fun twist, add in ice that is filled with edible flowers, lemon, or mint. Or just add them directly to the drink!Batch: You can easily batch this recipe by multiplying. Hit “print” and change the yield amount.
