If you want to present this homemade lemonade in a fancy way by decorating your glass with the sugar, then this is the first step you have to take!

Put syrup on a plate and sugar on another plate. Dip the rim of the glass in the syrup and dip it then in the sugar.

You can prepare the lemonade in that same glass with the following steps:
1. Put the mint leaves, the syrup (or sugar if you chose to go with sugar instead) and the lemon juice in the glass.
2. Mix and prick the mint leaves with a fork while mixing.
3. Add the sparkling water and mix again with the fork.
4. Add your ice cubes.

You can add a slice of lemon on the rim of the glass and the mint leaves on top of the ice to finish decorating your homemade lemonade.

And tadaaaaa! This recipe is as simple as this! You just finish preparing your lemonade and can start enjoying!

And you, what’s your favorite drink for summer?!
