Lemon-Mint Spritzer

This fizzy concoction will help cool the palate after this week’s spicy red beans and rice!

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup packed mint leaves, stems removed
1 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
Ice
Club soda

Method:
1. To make mint simple syrup, combine sugar, water, and mint leaves in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Immediately reduce heat and allow to simmer for 2 minutes.

2. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Strain the leaves.

3. To assemble the spritzer, add 1 ounce each of simple syrup and lemon juice to a tall glass filled with ice. Top with about 6 ounces of club soda. Stir. Garnish with fresh mint.
