It's a hot summer day, and youÔŅĹre lying in the hammock on your front porch or lounging by the pool. Nothing can get better than having your favorite thirst quencher with you as you enjoy this lazy day.  From iced teas to spritizers, summer living just canÔŅĹt get more refreshing.

Cranberry Apple Spritzer
1c. Chilled cranberry-apple juice drink (found in all grocery stores)

4 lemons
5 cups of cold water
ÔŅĹ cup of hot water 
1 cup of sugar
Ice for serving
1 lemon thinly sliced for serving
Sprigs of lemon mint

Cut lemons in half and squeeze the lemon juice into a pitcher.  Separately add the sugar to the hot water and mix (this helps the sugar dissolve); then add this sugar syrup to the pitcher.
