ADULT LEMONADE (Adapted from Epicurious)

1 cup (packed) mint leaves, chopped
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups vodka
Crushed ice
Fresh mint sprigs

Combine chopped mint and sugar in large bowl or pitcher.

Stir in lemon juice and vodka.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours to allow flavors to blend.

Strain mixture into pitcher. Fill six 8-ounce glasses with crushed ice. Pour mixture over. Makes about 6 servings, so I’ll be doubling the recipe for my group of 8. Would also be great crushed in a blender!
