Tequila Mint Lemonade with Spiced Candied Kumquats
- 1 part fresh squeeze lemon
- 3 parts water
- Simple syrup
- 1/2 bunch of mint leaves (save the ends of sprigs for garnish)
- spiced candied kumquats (optional)
- Tequila (We used silver or clear/white, unaged tequila, but use what you prefer)
Add lemon juice and mint leaves into pitcher and gently muddle the mint leaves to release the flavors. Add the desired amounts of candied kumquats, and finally add water and simple syrup to taste. We reserve the tequila last adding about a shot per glass of lemonade only for those guests who want it.
Garnish sprig of mint and drink umbrellas or cocktail picks skewered with spiced candied kumquats.
So simple to prepare and great for a hot summer day.
