Sparking Mint Lemonade

I haven't posted here in a while.
I could say it's because I've been too busy, but that would only be part of the truth.
Actually, it's because I just don't have that much to say. I read the blog posts of others on the web and it seems that they have so much to contribute. Well, I don't feel like I do all that much. So, for now I am only posting when I do. And today is one of those days.
I made up the best lemonade recipe in the world! Seriously, this is addictive.

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
bunch of mint - like at least a cup
Boil the above together to until the sugar is dissolved and you have a wonderful mint simple syrup that you can use for all sorts of things. The mint flavor gets stronger as it sits too.
Now add 1 cup lemon juice and 1 2 liter bottle of sparkling water.
That's it! So simple and SO good!
