I happened upon this combination by accident. I picked up the lemonade at the grocery thinking it would be a nice change from water. One day, I combined the lemonade with sparkling water, because I had opened a can of each and finished neither. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was…and the next day when I made it again, I added the mint. This mint lemonade is like a fresh summer spritzer and, in my opinion, the perfect summer drink!

Mint Lemonade Spritzer Tips

  • I make it by the glass, but it could definitely be made in a pitcher. A clear pitcher filled with this lemonade would be beautiful, with lemon slices floating on the top. 
  • You can leave the mint leaves in the drink, or remove them. I usually leave them in the glass, but they have a tendency to clog things up if you use a straw!

I’ve been working hard at getting my yard and deck ready for summer. Truth be told, I’m a little tired, so I’m glad things are almost squared away. As much as I love this house, it’s a challenge at certain times of the year. I tell myself that God will let me know when it’s time to leave here. So far I think he wants me to stay, so I’ll keep plugging away…sooner or later everything always gets done. Hopefully, within the next week or so, I’ll be sitting on my porch sipping this delicious mint lemonade spritzer.

    Recently had a good lemonade punch… two leiters low cal Seven up, bag of mixed frozen berries, pour in pink lemonade mix to taste…I know that is vague but just keep tasting it until it tastes right to you…everyone is a little different. Berries float and are pretty as well as tasty. Fill punch dispenser half full of crushed ice, then mix in rest of ingredients.

      Hi Becky! This sounds delicious. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Sorry but I would appreciate clarification on the ingredients, please.
    12 oz. can Lemon sparkling water–suggested brands so I’m sure I am buying the right type of product?

    12 oz. can Minute Maid Lemonade Light–this must be frozen concentrate, right? Am I understanding correctly that you do not dilute it but just thaw and use the appropriate amount?

    Thank you so much. I love everything about your site–your recipes, your printable, your decorating ideas, your common sense attitude!

      Hi Mary! I actually buy the Kroger brand sparkling water. Other brands are La Croix, Spindrift, or Perrier. If you can’t find the cans, just measure out 12 ounces. Minute Maid makes cans of lemonade that come 12 to a case. They have regular and light. It’s not frozen concentrate. It is usually in the aisle with the soda. Enjoy!

  3. The lemon and blueberry garnish make this beverage extra special!

    OMGOSH, Ann! This is such a wonderful easy “recipe”. Your presentation, however, is really what makes it so special. Can I just swing by to sit and sip with you?
    Have a wonderful Thursday- xo Diana

  5. I enjoy your blog so much. I always find fresh and new ideas! Thanks so much!

  6. Sounds Good an refreshing. Thank you for sharing. I ‘ll have to try it.

  7. Ann, I know what you mean about the yard work. I’m from Phoenix and we have one of the largest yards in the development. We weren’t terribly smart about the yard maintenance when we bought the house. Their is much trimming and then hauling away now that I am not working the yard is my responsibility. When it’s well over a 100 degrees I want to move. Though it does look good when I keep it up.
    Hang in there. I love your blog, I look forward to your posts.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Oh gosh Jo I can totally relate. I agree it’s amazing when it’s all finished but during the process I want to run away from home!

  8. Thank you for sharing your files, they are really appreciated

    I could really go for some of this refreshing looking lemonade right now! We have jumped right into summer here with temps in the 90s. I love sparkling water but I’ve never noticed it in a can. Will look for it this week so that I can make this!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Oh my gosh I turned on my heat last night! Feels like fall here. :(

    You are way too young to leave this beautiful home!!!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Carla you could not have said anything more perfect. Thank you!

  11. penny @ the comforts of home says:

    That does sound refreshing! I actually had some homemade lemonade with a splash of vodka at a restaurant and the added basil leaves and it was delicious!

  12. I planted a little mint in my washtub, so maybe if things warm up, we can have some mint lemonade by the end of June. I will think of you on your porch as we have ours. It is the simple things that bring joy. Your printable is very sweet. Have a beautiful week.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you Peggy…you have a beautiful week as well. :)

  13. Brilliant Ann, I love it when things like this happen. You’ve created a new thing :) Maybe you should market it all made up into one can!!

  14. That drink does sound good:) I recently started making ice tea again because the coffee just hasn’t been hitting the spot when it’s hot. I’ll have to try this, thanks Ann!
