Servings 8 Glasses


  • 2 quart pitcher


  • 2 Quarts Water
  • 1/4 Cup Wildflower Honey
  • 1 Large Lemon
  • 2 Bunches Fresh Mint Leaves


  • Pour the water into a large 2-quart pitcher or container with a lid. Stir in honey until dissolved.
  • Zest the lemon, being careful not to include any white pith, and juice the lemon. Combine the zest and juice with the honey-water mixture.
  • Hold a bunch of mint in one hand; use your other hand to twist and squeeze the leaves, slightly bruising them to release their fragrance and oils. Immerse the bunches in the water mixture.
  • Cover the container and place it in direct sunlight for two hours. Remove the mint leaves, shake, and serve over ice in tall glasses, garnished with a mint sprig.
