The Israeli Summer, aka Sparkling Limonana
Yield: 1 drink
  • 3 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1½ ounce mint simple syrup (recipe here)
  • Seltzer
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish
  1. In a glass combine the lemon juice and mint simple syrup. Stir to combine. Top with seltzer (I used a small glass and so used about 1 ounce to top, but you can add more seltzer for an even lighter drink). Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
