A combination of freshly squeezed lemons, mint leaves, and of course, tea makes for a very refreshing summer drink. To brighten up the flavors of a basic Arnold Palmer (half lemonade, half iced tea), I muddled fresh mint leaves (basil is another great option) using a muddler.
MINT LEMONADE ICED TEA

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2 medium lemons)

Put lemon wedges, sugar, and mint leaves into a thick walled cup and muddle until leaves are lightly crushed.
