This simple recipe is inspired by the serendipity of having both a happy mint bush and a thriving Meyer lemon tree in my back yard.   Their produce adds refreshing flavor to water.  In warm weather, I try to always keep a pitcher of this in my refrigerator.  I recommend drinking it up within a few days, as it can get bitter after that.
