This simple recipe is inspired by the serendipity of having both a happy mint bush and a thriving Meyer lemon tree in my back yard. They add refreshing flavor to the water. In warm weather, I try to always keep a pitcher of this in my refrigerator. I recommend drinking it up within a few days, as it can get bitter after that.
Place a few springs of fresh mint and several slices of lemon in the bottom of a clear pitcher. Add water and ice. Let sit for a few hours. Serve.
