I came home to a bowl of perfectly ripe lemons and decided to make some lemonade--one of my all-time favorite beverages. I bought some mid-size mason jars and did the whole decorate-the-mason-jar-lid thing again. This mini-DIY is definitely worth the five minutes it takes and is an efficient way of using up paper scraps too. Most importantly, it transforms a mason jar into something more pretty and personalized.
I started with this recipe but modified it along the way to taste. In the end I added lemon slices and fresh mint leaves to enhance the flavor a bit. This recipe is also good, if you like rosemary, but I'll use less sugar next time. I like it more tart and tangy :)
