Mint and Lemonade Slushy from Jenn:
2 1/3 cups water
2 1/3 cups sugar
1 lemon thinly sliced
2 1/3 cups fresh lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
Bring water and sugar to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Cover and boil for 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the sliced lemon. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice. Pour mixture through a strainer into an 8-cup glass pitcher and discard the lemon slices. Let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours or until chilled.
4 cups ice
Mint leaves - to taste
Pour ice into blender. Add mint leaves as desired and pour lemonade to the top of the ice. Blend until slushy. Serve with a sprig of mint or a lemon slice.
