Lemon-Mint Sparklers Recipe

Make the syrup a week ahead, and keep cold. Chill the club soda, too, but mix the drink just before serving to keep it nice and fizzy. Use leftover syrup to make a boozy version for the grown-ups in your crowd, and set up a self-serve beverage station with fresh lemon and mint leaves.
