Minty Lemonade Iced Tea

I’ve alluded in the past to my favorite summertime drink but I realized I’ve never shared the recipe here.  In the summer, I love to grab a pile of mint from my backyard garden and brew a pitcher of minty lemonade iced tea!  You’ll love this recipe too … it’s a favorite among all my friends!
