Ingredients

  • 8 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup raw organic honey
  • 6 med organic lemons
  • 2 bunches organic mint leaves *approximately 10 med-lg leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups Vodka

Instructions

  1. Simple Syrup Measure 2 cups of water and set the rest aside. Place honey into small saucepan and slowly whisk the 2 cups water into honey until fully incorporated. Place over med high heat and bring to a slow boil, approximately 10-12 mins. Set aside
  2. Minty Lemon Juice Place half (3 cups) of water in blender with half of the cut up lemons and 5 mint leaves. Blend until liquified. Mixture will be somewhat thick. Strain through a fine mesh colander so that juice separates from pulp into a pitcher. Repeat with remaining lemons, mint and water.
  3. Vodka Honey Lemonade Mix honey simple syrup, lemon juice and measured vodka in a pitcher. Chill for at least 2 hours. Garnish with lemon slices, mint leaves and serve over ice.

Recipe Notes

Making a Honey Simple Syrup helps the honey become fully incorporated into the lemonade. Eliminating this step will shorten the preparation time, however the quality will not be as high.
