Mulberry Lemonade

 As the weather starts to warm up there is nothing as refreshing as a glass of lemonade. As Emeril would say we are going to kick it up a notch by making a drink Aunt Bee would be proud to serve to Andy after a hard day at the Jail House.  I can just see Barney helping himself to glass.    

4 lemons, sliced
1/2 cup mint leaves
1 cup sugar (or splenda)
1 pint berries (strawberries and blackberries preferable)
1 quart water
1 quart club soda
1.                  Slice lemons and place in the bottom of the drink pitcher.
2.                  Add 1/2 cup fresh mint and 1 cup sugar on top of lemons. With wooden spoon mash the mixture for 1 minute.
3.                  Add the berries and mash lightly.
4.                  Add 1 quart water and refrigerate until chilled.
To serve: Fill a tall glass with ice and fill 3/4 with lemonade mixture, top with club soda and serve.
