It started when we discovered Gatopard Linens, a Washington, DC-based shop specializing in sophisticated tabletop accessories with a global flair (gatopard means leopard, their signature print). Launched by a pair of sisters (sound familiar?), the brand’s whimsical designs inspired us to set a table for a little summer backyard meet-up.
In our glasses:
Refreshing Mint Lemonade
Boil 1 cup water w/1 cup sugar, dissolving sugar to make simple syrup.
Let it cool to room temperature on counter.
Combine 7 cups cold water, the 1 cup of cooled simple syrup, and 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon into a pitcher.
Add ice and sprigs of fresh mint to garnish!
